Canada is still largely a commodity based economy, much like Australia. Mining, drilling for gas and oil, logging, and agriculture are how they produce most of what they have.

When God cast man out from the garden he set man and the Earth against each other. We either struggle to overcome nature or nature overcomes us and we die and this is what will happen if the greens get their way.

While many have long seen America as the global bad boy, everybody likes Canada. If Uncle Sam tucks his pack of Marlboros under his T-shirt sleeve and plays by his own rules, the Canadian moose -- or whatever their Uncle Sam equivalent is -- always wears his blue blazer and school tie and does his chores without being asked. Canada is a global citizen, a good neighbor, a northern Puerto Rico with an EU sensibility that earns its gold stars from the United Nations every day.
