Nope. It was never part of Britain.

Nor, for that matter, has Northern Ireland ever been part of Britain.

Canada is America's backpack. Adorable and along for the ride. That's all you need to know.

They eat moose, though. You have to give them credit for that.
I hope they cook it better than the Norwegians. Overrated meat if you ask me. But you don't have to ask me.

Re: Canada..Colony of Britain?

Moose is decent--but more of a potential death trap when driving up to the cottage in the middle of the night.


Bison jerky, made by the natives, is something not to miss

I always thought Canadians were Americans that said Eh after everything. And never understood their political system, living less then 30 minutes from them. But I just watched a Prince William visit there, to find that they said that he would soon rule Inuit tribes in the NW....Hugh? Really?

Canada is a Commonwealth country (one of many) with the Reagent of the United Kingdom as head of state.

It just goes to show what they haven't been teaching us in American schools.

No no. It's America's hat. We wear it when we want to keep our head warm, but if we lose it when the wind blows, it's not that big of a deal.
