Apparently Canadians are also unwilling to stand, publicly, behind their opinions.

I suppose I will keep an eye on this one. Notwithstanding the Anonymous Coward schtick, it might be hard to keep it up with gems like : Someone should fix Canada. Uh huh, really. The parlimentary system? Confederation? Regionalism? Our willingness to rally around beer commercials? I mean, what, is the Canadian Shield broken or something? So far, I gather our greatest ill is the shocking lack of e-commerce sites that ship to Canada. In terms of sheer goofiness, I think this is only matched by the old Rhinoceros [sic] party promise to give every Canadian a toaster.
