America, we’re flattered.
According to the 2014 Chicago Council Survey of American Public Opinion and US Foreign Policy, Canada is the United States’ favourite country in the whole wide world. Can you blame them? After all, we’ve got it pretty good here what with the free healthcare, sane gun laws and never-ending supply of bacon.
But, as it turns out, there’s a lot more to America’s crush on the Great White North than meets the eye. In fact, according to our neighbours to the south, there’s quite a bit they
envy love about our fair nation. Things we take for granted. We’ll let them explain:
We pour a mean pint.
Or we could just call you a guy with good taste.
Three words: Degrassi Junior High.
I love Degrassi because teen angst is better in Canada. YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOOT PAIN!! — Hana (@HanaMichels) August 31, 2014
For the last time, America, we don’t actually say “aboot.” But we’ll take the compliment anyway.
Did we mention the free healthcare?
If I were crowned Miss America I’d be like thank you I can’t afford health insurance bc I owe 20k in student loans & I’m moving to Canada — AmberTozer (@AmberTozer) September 15, 2014
Oh, we did? Well, we’re pretty sure President Obama would agree, it bears repeating.
Four seasons for everyone!

You know the little pieces that get – er, left behind? NOT IN CANADA.
We know umami
When you only get summer for approximately two days a year, you make those Slurpees count.
Except here, it’s pronounced “umam-eh“
Arrival in Halifax airport. Tim Horton’s does taste better in Canada. — Neil Kramer (@Neilochka) September 11, 2014
Everything Canada sends across the border gets corrupted. First it was Justin Bieber, now it’s our coffee and doughnuts. Just wait until we get a hold of Burger King. It’s payback time.
Our potato chips are cutting edge.
(Shh! Don’t tell him about all dressed.)
Seriously, we have everything here.
I’m going to move to canada because there’s good Indian food an the people are nicer — Jess Vezino (@jessicavezino) September 16, 2014
We didn’t want to brag, but now that you mention it…
We’re too polite to be annoying.
I’m moving to Canada where people won’t annoy me. — Bales (@Robsonbay_14) September 17, 2014
They like us! They really, really like us!
