So once again here we go, if you check the stats on crime in the US and canada you'll see clearly that the violent crime rate is higher in canada and the weapons of choice are knives, axes and anything sharp, so which is better, Being shot or stabbed? Sorry north boy but dead is dead no matter how you get there! And you can keep your precious government health care! Also before this gets too far out of hand, keep your politics to yourself before some lock happy moderator locks another thread!
My politics are pertinent as I am Canadian Citizen not a "North Boy"
Seeing as this thread is called "Canadians... What's it really like?" maybe you should leave this thread.
