  • It's all good
    Everything Canadian is great, but I'd have to say one of my favorites is Anne of Green Gables and Prince Edward Island.
  • O Ontario!
    Why, the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, of course! Of many, many fine experiences there, to me one of the highlights has to have been their Duchess of Malfi from three or four seasons ago.
  • Canadian music...
    Some of my favorite Canadians would have to be the Barenaked Ladies. I've been a fan of theirs for years, and they opened me up to a lot of other great Canadian bands...
    including Great Big Sea!
  • Breathtaking
    The Windsor Ballet.
  • Canadian....
    I would have to say Tom Green's a pretty funny guy.
  • Spin the Black Circle
    I enjoy The Vinyl Cafe w Stuart McLean.
  • Canadian FBOs
    My husband is a pilot and says that the FBOs he visit always have very polite and helpful employees. He also rates the Canadian Customs employees very high (much higher than the U.S. Customs people.)
  • Rush and Gordon Lightfoot
    Although they are from different genres of music, I am a big fan of both the rock band Rush as well as singer/songwriter Gordon Lightfoot.
  • It's an experience
    Floating on a boat, fishing for walleye on Black Lake while drinking a Labatt's Blue and listening to a little Neil Young. I need a vacation...
  • Oh Canada!
    My favorite Canadian thing is Jim Carrey!
  • Mike Meyer
    Thanks for Wayne and Austin Powers, Canada!
  • Funny Guys
    Both Mike Myers and Jim Carrey are hilarious!
  • Canada the beautiful
    Glorious lakes and waterways!
  • PEI
    Prince Edward Island
  • Michael Buble
    Can't get enough of the crooner.
  • Favorite Canadian
    Bacon. Just kidding! I have to go with Mike Myers (not the scary one from Halloween). He's very funny. Love the Austin Powers movies.
  • Barenaked Ladies
    If I had a million dollars, I'd buy you some art...a Picasso or a Garfunkel. Who doesn't LOVE Barenaked Ladies?!? (I mean the musical group, but I'm sure people appreciate the other kind, too.)
  • So many thing to like
    But since I must choose on make it Gordon Lightfoot
  • RUSH an epoch in music
    Lou, epoch
    Without a doubt the Canadian rock band Rush is my favorite thing about Canada. Rush has been creating and evolving their music since 1968. Their musical brilliance has influenced masses of musicians worldwide and has been a significant influence to every genre of music as we know it today.
    S.
  • Oh, Canada!
    Lake of the Woods
  • Oh Nell Fenwick!
    Dudley Do-right - need I say more.
  • As If...
    Duh...Paul Schaeffer.
  • Canadian Faves
    Lake Louise and the surrounding glaciers near Banff is the most beautiful place on earth. Truly, truly, breathtaking and a piece of heaven on earth.
  • tickets???
    My favorite Canadian would have to be Michael J Fox, not only do I love him as an actor but admire him for his courage and strength!!!!
  • Music, people..
    some of my favorite bands are Canadian (Great Big Sea being high on the list, along with the Paperboys, Glengarry Bhoys, BNL...) and I'm fascinated by Curling as a sport, but I have to say the people. I live in Columbus, OH and the general friendliness of people when I'm in Canada leaves me slightly bemused. The first time someone offered to help me when I was lost I was half expecting them to jump me b/c that's what it's like here. But they were honestly just trying to help. People on the street actually look you in the eye and SMILE!

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
