Why Canada?

What Did Canadians Do to Deserve this?
Now, anyone that knows me well enough knows that I'm not a huge fan of our neighbor to the north. (Canada, not Wyoming. At least not this time.) But just because they're basically a cute loft apartment over a really good party, doesn't mean that I don't respect their nation. They've got freedom, democracy, cars, human rights, and minus Quebec, they speak English. Kinda. Eh?

So when it came out in the news that the Canadian authorities had foiled a Islamic terrorist plot to blow stuff up - and kill infidels, of course - I had the same thought as the author of this article. Canada is as liberal and multicultural as they get. They seem to handle their immigrant population pretty well, and there is never a big fuss over race relations like they have in Holland and France.

But apparently high taxes and a leave-well-enough-alone society even bites Canada's frozen white asses sometimes. I for one am very thankful that they seem to have grown a set and avoided needless bloodshed. Lets see now if this rude awakening lasts and/or amounts to anything.
