I just LOVE the american view of canada, ya ok we all live in igloos... now whos logic is flawed? lets "break it down" the majority of canadas population lives at a lattitude roughly the same as the northern states. the % of canadians who live even remotely as far north as alaska is negligible. on top of that, BC's coast enjoys the same weather as much of U.S.A's west coast.
ALSO, you american folk have just as much access to the rockies, world class facilities and even MORE funding than us canadians. Looks like your world just got rocked :P.
p.s. in all seriousness, who gives a fuck, norway is rocking us all anyways.
