Adams feels that this difference is due to our patriarchal beliefs, our religious beliefs, and the American Dream, that Americans like to identify ourselves, to judge our country with the greatest among us...we like to think that if Bill Gates can start out in his garage, and end up richer than God, then so can we, we all have that chance. Canadians like to judge the country by how the least among them are doing...by the treatment received by the poor, the elderly, the children. I don't see one thing here that I feel closer to America than I do to Canada. Did you read The Handmaids Tale? It's a creepy world where we find ourselves these days.
Within Canada? I choose Vancouver, because it's the closest to my family. Mom & brother in Juneau, Sister in Seattle, Sister and Dad in Portland. Plus I've heard it's a GREAT city. When you come visit us, pack an umbrella.
