@Avenger: ” I agree. I couldn’t care less about Canadian politics or government.”
That’s fine. We prefer it when America doesn’t notice us. We’ve seen what’s happened to countries that America notices.
BTW, who is your largest trading partner in the world? Canada. Who is your second largest trading partner in the world? The province of Ontario. So to some economic extent, you should care a bit. But, it works without ordinary Americans caring or knowing, so why change that?
As to why ask Canadians? Well, I guess they wanted to get an outside take on the election and if they’re going to do that, no foreigners know America better than Canadians. Always have, whether we want to or not, you guys are kinda loud down there lol. Canada has of course and always will work closely with whomever is President or whatever parties control the House / Senate, as our relationship goes above politics. That being said, the people they asked *did* have a certain slant but most of their slant was directed towards Canadian politics lol. Avenger, I take it you’re a Republican supporter?
And, Canadians actually care about the US. On 9/11, we took in, housed, and fed for a week over 10,000 Americans that were stranded in the air and couldn’t land. People just took them right into their homes. Fire and police brigades from all over eastern Canada raced down to New York City to help. During your power outage this year, Canadian hydro line crews were down helping to speed repairs along. So we actually care, beyond the economic relationship.
