The NYTimes put together some thoughts on Canada from famous Canucks now resident in the US (though that last part is understood in the “famous Canucks”). Malcolm Gladwell comes up with what I think is the funniest, and most Canadian:

In history class, in seventh grade (or as we like to say in Canada, grade seven) we learned the story of the American Revolution — from the British perspective. Turns out you were all a bunch of ungrateful tax cheats. And you weren’t very nice to the Loyalists. What I miss most about Canada is getting the truth about the United States.

Happy Canada Day, all!
