... No?

Although as someone who has hung out with a lot of Canadians from the Alberta region, unless they tell me their Canadian, I never notice.

Nope, maybe in 60 to 100 years, at this point, Canada will be building the wall. If the U.S doesn't change their political view, Canada will experience mass immigration, probably that American people from the mid and the high-class will arrive into Canada, in such a scenario, a lot of American wealth will emigrate into Canada and yes, a better version of the US will emerge, because the poor will remain in the US.

I assume he meant something Canada produced that rivaled a positive that the US accomplished. Not rival one of their negatives.

I live in an area close to the border where Canadians visit frequently and have traveled there enough times to get the general feel of the scenery and people and it's not much different from the US.

As well, here where I live, indian people are not liked by a lot of people for various reasons

Although I will add, going from Maine to New Brunswick, you will have to look for differences and know what to look for rather than it being immediately apparent which country you are in

That's a pretty neutral answer and very true, but the American population are by far less discriminatory than so many other countries in the world, one thing is that in the U.S, there are a lot of predominant news networks who are constantly reporting and publishing about internal issues, because the American market and its consumers are the most profitable in the world, so, internationally speaking, people are constantly knowing what's happening there, because of the focus.

Let's us say that from one day to another, international news networks would start focusing Russia, Serbia, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, etc.. and you would clearly appreciate how America's racism is dwarfed, it would be insignificant.

@takenstew22: It's all manipulation, the Left and the Neo-Liberals want to sink the Americans in guilt, in sadness, in denigration and degradation, they want to spiritually and intellectually break them down and force them on their knees, so they can manipulate them, so they can toy with them, because as I said, the U.S posses the most influential consumer-base in the world and the best market, so, they want to take that all for them, that's why they use all those mass-shootings in order to favor their agenda and therefore promote a ban against guns.

"Remember that these people openly hate you. They don't care about crime. They don't care about the kids. Their goal is to disarm you so they can control you."

PS:

What they desire for you, is when you go out from your home, you shouldn't watch straight forward, but down, in the emptiness, be in a void of hopelessness, hating yourself, believing that you're a monster, the evil, unworthy to claim something for yourself or your loved ones, because based on their retrograde vision, you all are worthless, a piece of meat without meaning, without history, without ancestry without dreams, without aspirations and goals.

Canadas really not that nice there are some spots thats really industrial I'd say are more dirty from industry more than the USA especially in Ontario

Toronto is amazing but pretty dangerous just like any US city the US has way more pros to it than Canada plus everything is so expensive in Canada it used to cost 5$ for a gallon of milk

Lived in a lot of cities within the Country of Canada. Is it racist towards brown and black folks? yuuuuuuup

is that out of the ordinary compared to a lot of the cities I've been to here in the states? Nope.

They are about the same in terms of racism, but I can't say the same about Healthcare or Police Brutality...or mass shootings...or 'peaceful protests' that end up becoming riots and lead to murders

Canada has universal healthcare, cleaner air, clean drinking water, lower crime rates, higher minimum wage, fewer homeless people, fewer natural disasters, affordable or free higher education, smaller prison population, paid vacation time, less religious fanaticism, better immigration system, less political corruption, etc.

Dangerous man, I'm telling you they've been running covert operations to embed Canadian agents in America for decades now. Just look at this documentary clip.
