I'm Canadian and I think it would benefit all of us if we became American. I mean we are already are anyway. Most of the businesses in Canada are American. We mostly watch American movies (seriously, think back and can you think of any Canadian movies you've watched; ya, I can't, either). Our so-called culture is pretty much American. And we do virtually everything they tell us to do.
So, why not join America. There's no shame in admitting that we are all practically American anyway.
