I realize that Canada isn't as important to the US as the US is to Canada, but it seems reasonable that Americans should know a little about Canada. Now, please don't go thinking that. Canada is very important to the United States. We would almost fall apart without your support and help. One would almost indeed fall apart without the other. I've often thought about the fact that Americans don't know much about Canada, and I think I've reached this opinion as to why... Canada is very young. Granted, so is the United States. However, the United States has much more history and action behind it then does Canada. In one year, we cannot get through everything we need to about American history as indepth as we would like. We do touch on Canadian history, but it's not as forefront as our own, and so people tend to not remember it, basically because most Americans will never travel beyond the borders of our country anyways. There is much more to learn about American history than Canadian. And maybe that's why y'all have the time to focus in on American history as well as your own, whereas we do not. This is not to justify or excuse the ignorance of some Americans. However, I know a lot of Canadians who couldn't even tell me where Florida or Minnesota are on an American map. Remember, it works both ways.
