So, the Canadian Dream is to not have the worst beer in the World, and to stop being thought of as that "Polite little 51st State up north"?

How you yankees can stomach the swill you drink is beyond me. I know when I drink beer I prefer to actually get drunk.

To be fair, when you don't have to spend $300-600/month on health insurance, $1M liquid net worth goes a lot farther in Canada than it does in the US.

'Net' as in 'after expenses', or 'net' as in what a goalie stands in front of?

I wonder how many of those "immigrant millionaires" weren't of high status back in China or India.
Everyone loves those "came from nothing" stories, but those are rare. Canada picks the cream of the 4 billion-strong Asian crop.

Your city probably has a Chinatown, though.

FTA:  In fact, most (67%) of the richest Canadians are self-made millionaires

From what I understand, 80% of millionaires in America are first generation millionaires too.  If you make a decent salary and contribute to your 401k, it's not that difficult to retire a millionaire.

One trend I have noticed over the past 10 years is that strip clubs in the US have gotten worse and worse. This includes the ones in Vegas as well as LA/SF/NYC.

I've heard nothing but good things about the girls up in Montreal, however.

They say that in Canada there are so many Tim Hortons that you can walk from one end of the country to the other and your coffee will never get cold. Well in the US, there are so many craft breweries that you can stagger from one end of the country to the other and never have your BAC drop below .20.

Wonderful news, until the US 1% buys all of Canada with their pocket change and merges it into the United Plutocracy of America.

/no worries: after they dumb down your education system to our level, you won't care.

I'm Canadian, I may not be wealthy but I'm 29 and doing alright for myself.  I love my job, I love where I live and I've got a great group of friends.

Not everyone in Canada is even that lucky, it's not all maple syrup and beaver tails.

This. I probably pay $300-600/month extra in taxes than an American at my income level. Plus we have insane sales taxes (15% combined Goods & Services tax, plus huge surcharges on gas and booze)

I have relatives who live in Toronto and Vancouver.  I've visited there a few times.

The relatives are very nice.  Both cities are nice.  [shrugs]

If you walk from one end of Canada to the other they'll find your corpse in bear droppings somewhere out in a field in Manitoba.

OK, but health insurance isn't free unless you're low-income or on disability. It's $64/month in BC, not including dental or eyeglasses. Gas is $5/gallon, a case (12) of domestic beer is at least $15, and many food products (like milk) are more expensive up here. We don't get to claim mortgage interest as an income-tax deduction, and our housing prices in some areas (mainly Vancouver) are still in unpopped-bubble territory.

And before you ask, each of those dollars is $0.98 in "real money".
