CANADIANS AREN'T WEENIES! Check out this blog about Canadian snipers fighting in Afghanistan. It's so easy to mock our Northern Neighbors, that I forget how lucky we are to share a massive border with a peaceful nation with a similar culture. And it reminds me of the important distinction between a people and their elites. Canadian elites ape European elites, which means they don't like Americans. The Canadian public, like the European public, generally does like Americans, shares our virtues, and try to emulate our success. Guess who produces hard-nosed snipers? Hint: not the Canadian elites.
