> Canadians tend to blend in. Americans don't tend to notice Canadians in our midst until one of you says "eh" or "aboot" or gets confused with Imperial weights and measures (or in Rivikah's case, goes on a tirade about our money. ;-) We see you and we dont notice you. We treat you as if you were one of us. In a way, that is one of the greatest compliments we could pay you. If we don't notice your contributions in the same way we notice the contributions of our European and Pacific allies, its only because we don't put you in the same class as those remote countries. In essence, you're not friends, you're family.

When I read this, I thought about this one travel program I saw some time ago. In one segment of one episode, they were naming a few celebs who are Canadian. Many of them, I never would've guessed. Isn't Michael J. Fox Canadian?
