"O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!

From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee."

"It's so clean and bland! I'm home!"

(Seriously, though, I love your country. Best family vacation ever. I totally want to get sick there on my next trip and see your health care system, firsthand.)

Damn, man, I hope Unnamed Defence Contractor has a good insurance plan.

Not to get into a huge health care debate, because our system has problems too, but when my grandmother made a couple of emergency ambulance rides to the hospital a few years ago, all she got was a bill for $45. Damn.
