Comparing countries.

Really interesting piece on Newsworld (goddamn I love that channel) on the differences between the Canadian and the American elections. In talking about the bombast and rhetoric used by candidates on both sides of the 49th, an election expert opined that "In the US you have 'I Have A Dream', but in Canada the message is more pragmatic and more concrete, like, 'I have a dream that the road to the Tim Hortons will be paved well'."

I think that pretty nicely shows the difference between the two of us.
