Oh Canada!

“What bugs me about Canadians, if I may, is that they wear that damn patch on their bags, the Canadian flag patch. That way, they differentiate themselves from us.”

An interesting article describing the way Americans feel about Canadians showing the Maple Leaf Flag when they travel overseas. I really can’t blame them – the way the United States has behaved under the Bush II administration, it’s no wonder anyone that might be mistaken for an American is going to great lengths to make sure that they are not. Personally, I’ve travelled overseas with a Canadian flag on my backpack; it gives someone one less reason to heckle, confront, argue, or shoot me.
