I don't have anywhere else to express this. But I want to thank all Canadians. The US and Canada have been allies and have fought together since WWI.

The Canadian people have been stalwart allies. I remember
Canadians smuggling out Americans from Iran during the hostage crisis. On 911 Canadians open their arms and hearts to Americans on rerouted commercial flights. Canadian's as NATO allies have fought with us in Afghanistan.

Canada has been a great trading partner. I just wanted to express my gratitude to all Canadians. Most Americans value our neighbors to the North. Thank you Canada!

Cheers, Rallynow!
We have lots of friends in the USA. Also a lot of great gamers!

and you guys have Fort Henry in Kingston, introduced us to poutine and have the greatest looking coins,a great miniature company and the best source of walking canes on earth.That's not to even mention the great parks,campsites, pleasure boat docks and islands on the St. Lawrence and "Upper Canada". Lots of fun memories of past summer vacations.

Hate that I never made it to Quebec for the food and Vancouver for the beauty of its wilderness.

Along with Rallynow..words cannot express the thanks for standing with us from WWI and Normandy thru the current conflicts.

+10 for Rallynow, thanks for saying what I have been thinking.

Yes indeed, Rallynow expressed my feelings toward Canada well. It's a great country, and I have never had any unpleasant encounter with anyone from Canada. Besides which, I had two Canadian cousins from an older generation who lost their lives in World War II serving in the RCAF.

Canada is a great ally, but just don't try and sell them some Milk Products.

And they will now have plenty of steel and aluminium. And a new government in Ontario!

And we do Thank You for your help in defending the Free World.

And i thought legalising pot was good cheer enough!

The United States has a $333 USD million trade SURPLUS with Canada with DAIRY alone. The problem the United States has with Canadian dairy is that the industry exists at all.

And thanks for Rush, Triumph, and April Wine! You can keep Ann Murray…please.

Thank you, I had my breath taken away this past weekend. I have lived in the US now for 20 years although I am still well connected to my great country and remain a Canadian citizen. I appreciate the sentiment.

And Neve Campbell, Tim Hortons, Ryan Reynolds, Dan Akroyd and Kim Cattrall.

Without Canada we would never have had Big Trouble In Little China or Grosse Pointe Blank.

Thank you most of all for Pulp Figures (some of the coolest miniatures on the market). That said, you can keep Caillou (anyone with small children will understand why).

John Candy, Ice Hockey, and thanks for the fish.

Although I am a proud Canadian I am also very proud of my great-great grandpa, who served in the 4th Minnesota under Grant, and of my dad's cousin who was a US Army MP in Italy from 1943 to 1945

John F. Kennedy

Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners. And necessity has made us allies. Those whom nature hath so joined together, let no man put asunder. What unites us is far greater than what divides us.
– 1961 (Address to Canadian Parliament)

Now if we could only find a way to send Justin Bieber back I think we could call it even. All kidding aside, good neighbors are hard to find.
