Having been to France and nearly all Canadian provinces...and with a few passport stamps from elsewhere...
I do appreciate the sacrifice of the Canadians in WWII as they dutifully fulfilled their obligations to the Crown.
I'm glad that a French-Canadian can snipe from behind her current mother's broad and protective skirts. It's easy to be critical of this country, that for no cost at all, provides the protection that allows Canada to thrive.
That, said...Canada is GREAT--the French I can do without.
