It's not just the weather that's cooler in Canada

You live next door to a clean-cut, quiet guy. He never plays loud music or throws raucous parties. He doesn't gossip over the fence, just smile politely and offers you some tomatoes. His lawn is cared-for, his house is neat as a pin and you get the feeling he doesn't always lock his front door. He wears Dockers. You hardly know he's there.

And then one day you discover that he has pot in his basement, spends weekends at peace marches and that guy you've seen mowing the yard is his spouse.

Allow me to introduce Canada.

The Canadians are so quiet that you may have forgotten they're up there, but they've been busy doing some surprising things. It's like discovering that the mice you are dimly aware of in your attic have been building an espresso machine.

What's jjb?
Anyway, i think gay marriage is now being recognized. Legally i think too, but i'm not to sure.
Regardless, i'm proud of all the accomplishments Canada has made over the years. I'm glad Canada isn't run by a rightwing government (Federally).
Also the fact that religious beliefs do not affect our laws so much is good too.
