I remember being a kid and my parents ranting about the United States, especially when we vacationed there.
They would always talk about how you could buy stuff cheaper there and they had stuff there that we didn’t have here.
Because life is about stuff, like little cans of Coke, not that it matters.
They are older than Canada and much bigger by population.
Like the big brother that had more years under his belt you always aspired to be.
For years we’re heard of the brain drain and how many of Canada’s biggest and brightest were heading south for more opportunity and ultimately more money.
It’s amazing how a recession and housing crash can change all that.
A recent study showed for the first time in history Canadians are wealthier than Americans, by as much as $40,000. on average.
So much for the phrase, ‘there’s no money in Canada’ apparently there is less down south.
Imagine what that may do to the Canadian psyche?
Before you fire up the ski doo and start doing dry donuts remember, it can all change at the drop of a cowboy hat.
