How Much Do Americans Know About Canada?
Over the years I have been shocked by just how little Americans know about Canada. Not everyone mind you but a large percentage of the people. We share the longest unprotected border in the world. We are the both each other’s largest trading partners (still more than China). I have had some people from the US ask how many people live in igloos, like it was common place. Many think the entire country is a frozen tundra (yes some of it is but not all). In the winter much of the US (and Canada for that matter) fighting freezing temperature and snow storms, while where I live in Canada I can go outside in short sleeve shirts and shorts. Canadians are generally very knowledgeable about the United States but it does not go both ways.
