Canada has been doing stuff for years to prevent political immigration, going back to when they cracked down on people coming in there to try to escape the draft. If you're gay and your government is saying "we don't like your lifestyle" and someone else's government says "you're cool", it's impossible that the temptation wouldn't be there. It is.

Beware of a Ralph Nader quote:

"Canadians know little about their achievements in the past. They don't even teach them in their schools."

Dec. 9, 1992 - from an interview on CBC Television, quoted in Famous Lasting Words by John Robert Columbo

Sarah Vowell (American) and Douglas Coupland (Canadian) have actually both written about how well-informed, historically speaking, the average Canadian is.

I don't know. I'm still waiting for that to be cleared up.

I'll take a stab at this. So you're suggesting that American gays who might want to go to Canada to get married might want to rethink it because of something vague Nader said about the Canadian education system 14 years ago?

You could write Ralph a letter, he seems to be mis-informed if that's the case.

As far as the direction Canada is going, only time will tell if it works out.

He also said that 14 years ago, so I'm not certain it's even relevant, let alone correct--if it ever was. I don't think Ralph Nader's area of specialty is the Canadian education system.

Now let's get this thread back on track, okay?
