    Doesn't bode well for either country:

    I'm more intrested in how the other 60% responded to the survey?

    What percentage of respondents were from Quebec?

    What percentage of US children know Canada exists?

    Those are kids who think it's cool to use harsh, big words.

    They are dumb.

    Again, this is important. If I had to guess, the largest anti-USA sentiment is coming from Quebec - I could be wrong, but I doubt I would be off by much.


    -=d=-: If you think the kids in the survey are dumb, what about the adults teaching them?

    Kathianne: This is from the article you posted above.

    "Nor is it surprising that this feeling is more pronounced in Quebec where Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe said that he would rather live under the United Nations than the Stars and Stripes."

    Duceppe is no longer the Premier of Quebec, and I don't know when he said this, but the Bloc Quebecois is a good place to start when researching this topic. There are other areas where Canadians are not happy with the outcomes of certain disputes between countries, but comments like that, made by public figures is not acceptable.

    I hear you Said. You and Issac are what I think of when I think Canada. Both very good people. There are problems I hope will be bridged in coming years. I'm not anti-Canada by a long shot, though when I'm hyped it might seem such.

    Okay, Canada is just East of Alaska and North of US. Now, really, who is the PM?

    Frankly, I find it amusing that they focus on the 40% that think we are "evil" instead of the 60% that apparently have NO problems with US.
