Just to let you know, Canadians have also died for pretty much the same rights (we have 'freedom of expression' up here), and in case your media fails to mention it, those deaths are often alongside YOUR troops, and have even been killed by US bombs that were dropped onto DND troops doing training. Now if we Canadians had politicans that could say no whenever an American president begs for help... if you want to pull the "it's an American board stuff" then by all means have it that way but please don't complain when people up north stop helping out.

Our troops, politicians and everyday citizens have helped out Americans more than we get recognition for. The last big event I remember was the grounding of US planes all across Canada during 9/11. But even then we got critisized by many of those south of the border. Nowhere else would you have seen normal Mr. & Mrs. Joe showing up at shelters set up by the Red Cross and take people to their homes because "it wouldn't be the Canadian Thing to do" if we let these stranded passengers sit on cots in arenas and barracks.

I personally took great pride in helping out at the local lobster shop where fresh cooked lobsters were served free of charge to those who probably expected a dried-out bulkmade sandwich instead. It turned into a chance to learn about each other and for the stranded to see new places and take their minds off things.

I know this went way off the original topic but it pisses a lot of Canadians off when you hear the "its an American (whatever item)" because those words are usually meant in an anti-Canadian sentiment. Now if that wasn't your intention then please accept my apology.
