10. I don't see it. We are too different than the USA. And - we stand to
have a much better economy because we have more resources per capita and very little debt. Also health care. If the USA doesn't have health care - nobody will want to have anything to do with them.

Why should we give up our nice country when we stand to all share in the wealth created by good taxation and income taxes et all?

You cannot get Canadian to vote to belong to a messed up place like the US. And with more US focus on producing weapons instead of civil goods - we will not be dependant on them..but more dependant on China, Brazil, Russia & India.

They just cannot sell it. The neocon party in Canada has had to change its public policy to become more progressive to have a hope in hell of ever getting elected.

In a few years, when the US controlled Alberta is turned into the biggest stovetop in the world what with tar sands being cooked (only way to process tar sands is to cook it) even the Albertans will tire of living there.

We are not happy with the present smog in Ontario/Quebec.
