Default Canada is Having a Moment and The Stats Prove It

  1. For your reading pleasure:




    CNW GroupJuly 1, 2019




    Ninety-five percent of Canadians are proud of their country; three in five Americans say they have considered a move to Canada

    TORONTO , July 1, 2019 /CNW/ - As the country celebrates Canada Day on July 1 , a new international Kelton Global survey* commissioned by Canada Goose shows that Canadians are beaming with pride, while Americans admire their Northern neighbour for the country's many attributes.

    Founded in Toronto in 1957, Canada Goose proudly exports the brand of Canada around the world. In celebration of Canada's birthday, Canada Goose commissioned a new study to highlight what is at the heart of the love people have for Canada . The results show that Canadians are an impressive and inspired group of people who are proud of their diversity, and natural landscapes, and feel their country is moving in the right direction. Some even go so far as to say that they believe the 21st century belongs to Canada .

    Americans also recognize the opportunities that Canada has to offer. They describe Canada as polite, positive and diverse. Nearly a quarter of Americans (23%) also believe the world needs more Canadian success stories, implying the Canadian dream is alive and well beyond Canada's borders:
    1. Canadians are filled with pride: 95% of Canadians exclaim they are proud of their homeland; 64% because of their access to healthcare; 50% because of their education system; and they are hopeful about their country's future. In fact, Canadians are more than twice as likely as Americans (33% vs. 15%) to say their country is moving in the right direction.
    2. 64% of Americans have considered a move to Canada for the following reasons:
      1. Affordable healthcare (63%);
      2. A more stable political climate (38%);
      3. Safety (38%);
      4. Affordable education (36%);
      5. Equal rights (35%);
      6. Job opportunities (33%).
    3. …which is good news as both U.S. and Canadian respondents choose "welcoming" most often to describe Canadians. More specifically, 44% of American respondents feel Canadians are welcoming of diversity in all its forms, and 40% of Canadians describe Canada as being community-oriented.
    4. For Canadians, there is no place like home: They are nearly twice as likely as Americans (58% vs. 30%) to declare their country is the greatest place to live.
    5. All respondents admit there are things to fix:
    6. …but they are committed to making things better:
    7. They also believe Canadians have the potential to solve those issues as both Canadian and American respondents declared Canadians as "bold innovators"(38% vs. 20%).



    *The study surveyed 1,088 people aged 18+ in the U.S. and 1,104 aged 18+ in Canada . Both the U.S. and Canadian surveys were conducted online during the period of June 14th-18th, 2019 . The U.S. study has a margin of error of +/- 3.0%, and the Canadian study has a margin of error of +/- 2.9%.

The right to whatever health care we require, regardless of the cost.

Health costs are the number one cause of bankruptcy in the U.S.

I'd be dead multiple times if it weren't for Canadian health care.

The right to government funded health care. (Because we collectively pay for it).

My late fiancé from Montreal father was diagnosed with cancer and was told he needed immediate treatment. They told him take a number 6 months wait. He would have died but came to the states and paid for treatment. Rationed HC just like the U.K. both I refer to as death panels

If only Mexico were on _your_ southern border, you'd understand why it won't work here.

Well recent polling here said that only 22% of party of hate supporters are proud of their country. The democrat party of today isn’t anything that resembles anything remotely close to what they represented in recent past

Cucknadians crowing about their healthcare system? "

****, even the New York Times says y'alls have **** healthcare. They ranked the healthcare systems of Canada, Britain, Singapore, Germany, Switzerland, France, Australia and the U.S.

Canada came last, eliminated by Britain in the first round.

The question asked was what rights we have in Canada vs. the US. Funded health care was given as an example. That still stands.

Nobody has disputed that. The light is being shined upon the **** poor quality of your HC as noted in the NY Slimes study of all places

Time it took me in the USA to get an MRI for a sports related injury: 3 days
Time it took my Canadian friend to get one: 9 months.

Wait 700,000 new bodies dumped into the system with none of them paying in a nickel towards it the past 6 months. System is going to get overloaded because the party of hate and uni-party decepticons profit from the chaos
