In the Boston area, during the worst of the Irish economic crisis a few years back, there were  tons of undocumented Irish visa overstays.

Will says, "Canada has such a high standard of living. Much higher than it is in America. And most people in Canada have no desire to come here."

Really?....my BIL lives in Canada.  I've visited many times.

Didn't see the higher standard of living, at least not in Toronto and the surrounding area.

/It's like the U.S. but with milk in bags, speedometers with the mph/kph reversed, and English chocolate.

"standard of living" is something you spot like a bird watcher you know.  It involves statistical data, averaging and so forth.   Canada's standard of living is slightly better than the average.  You pick a random neighbourhood in US versus a a random neighbourhood in Canada and you are going to be pretty close to coin flip in terms of relative standard of living.

All in all, the worse thing about living in Canada is the farking climate.

In some places.  I live far north, so yeah - snow on the ground 6-7 months out of the year, and hard winters.  But summers are great, so there's that.  I find everything is more expensive here as well, and not nearly the variety of goods - but that may just be my location.

When I spot a suspected Canadian, I brush into them intentionally and pay attention to how they say "Sorry."

Of course, there's always the risk one of them going all Penalty Box on my ass while calling me a "hoser."

Don't laugh - in some rural places we do service, dogsled was the primary form of transportation until the '70s.  Now they all have snow machines and 4-wheelers, and road maintenance includes side paths along major roads for snowmobiles even in suburban areas.

Clearly, we need to build a wall along our northern border to keep those dirty Canadians out.  They'll infest America with poutine, aboots, and sawry's.  Next thing you know, American football will have 12 players, an extra 10 yards, and deeper end zones.  Think I'm kidding?  Tim Horton's is a way for Canada to infect America with their coffee and sweets.  It's only a matter of time people...we must act quickly to keep the Canadian scourge at bay.

And free healthcare, and better unemployment compensation, and better social safety net.

If you look at the top half of US vs the top half of Canada, you will probably see that US has a higher standard (say 10 to 8). But if you look at the lower half, the picture is totally different, say 1 to 5.

I would add that the public school system is generally better in Canada and that a decent University education is more affordable for Canadian residents.  Of course in both countries there is a great deal of variability on both counts so it's a generalization
