We have had plenty of Canadian members here with acne. Almost every mention you see of someone taking Diane/dianette Birth Control are Canadians as it isn't approved for use in the U.S., or if it is now, it's a recent change.
Most of the claims about the paradise that is Canada are untrue. If the food is better at all, it is marginally so. Do a quick google on the Canadian diet and you will find plenty of results from Canadian news stations and publications about the sad state of the canadian diet, diabetes, obesity, etc.
And yes, they get free medical care, but it's the same bad medical care we get here with doctor's only having the vaguest idea that diet, exercise, and sleep is important while being positive that what everyone really needs are drugs.
And hey, Canada. How 'bout you learn to refine your dirty oil yourself and keep it in Canada. I'm sure you can hire people if you can't figure it out.
I live in Canada and actually it is better here , we have less crime , our food is better too less processed , yes our health care system is pretty
much free another huge bonus , even though orthodox medicine is mostly barbaric and corrupt still surgery etc can be usefull . The US is the
drug capital of the world pretty much the inventor of the pill popping culture , in a recent world ranking the US ranked a dismal 40 th in the world
for developed countries in regards to health care and longevity ie quality of life yet they spend the most per person on it , hmmm , could it be all
the prescription drugs they hand out like candy .
Canada on the other hand is ranked at 27 , a big difference indeed here we are learning to use alternative medicine , herbal medicine ,
acupuncture ,Chinese medicine or what is know as the ancient art of healing , vs the cold and corrupt Orthodox system. You guys invented this
sorry state of affairs we are in sadly , in regards to the oil sands we have , we use the highest standards to minimize environmental impact from
extracting the crude oil from the sands. If you don't like our oil don't buy it , we have plenty of other customers around the world who are in
desperate need of it , remember oil runs the world and it will take a long time for it to be replaced with alternative methods , solar power , electric
wind generators , electric cars etc....
So in conclusion I am proud to live in Canada , no it's not perfect but it's a hell of a lot better than the U.S system.
Thanks, but I don't need the lecture on the state of the U.S. health care. Or crime or anything else. In fact, I'm the last person who needs. it. I didn't even say that Canada was not better. All I said was that it wasn't the paradise darkheart tells us and we have plenty of Canadians here with acne.
And a very easy google search pulls up tons of Canadian publications you have the same issues with diet and health that we do. Articles with headings like 'Canadian diet looks like a Dog's Breakfast' which is a stupid title because no one should be feeding their dog that way.
And we aren't buying your dirty oil, you just want to pipe it across our rivers and streams so we can refine it for you to sell to China. And that type of oil should not be piped anywhere. It takes a lot of pressure to move it, it's extremely corrosive and when it bursts the pipes and leaks, it sinks to the bottom of the water where it cannot be cleaned up. Check out the state of the recent spill in Arkansas. And the massive spill into the Kalamazoo river in Michigan three years ago that was hardly reported on because it happened at the same time as the BP oil spill that still has not been cleaned. Because it really can't be.
