1)Canada has the highest cell phone bills in the world. 3rd world dumpsters like India have unlimited talk, text and data for only 10 dollars a month. not even a single Canadian carrier comes even close to matching that.



2)money laundering through casinos and real estate have created a overdose crisis among drugs and have obliterated housing affordability for young couples who want to start a family.



3)you continue to invest in outdated technology such as oil and gas. why not a massive technological investment into renewable energy for a complete and utter fossil fuel phase out instead?



4)public schools are not rigorous. in japan all students regardless of background push themselves to their theoretical limits of whats possible. nothing even comes close to that in Canada.



5)your healthcare system while universally accessibility is becoming notoriously outdated and has a 1960's mentality. family doctors are hard to come by. there are long waiting times to see a specialist doctor.



is there a reason why Canada thinks of its itself as first world when life in Vancouver is so disgustingly horrible for millions of vancourites.

See if you can move to the EU. While I was in France, I met a handful of Americans who were retiring there.

The EU has done a lot of consumer advocacy. That's why cellphones and internet connection are much cheaper there than in the US.

You're a bot or something, aren't you?

If Canada were a third world country, we couldn't afford getting railed on cell bills. What you say makes no sense.

2)money laundering through casinos and real estate have created a overdose crisis among drugs and have obliterated housing affordability for young couples who want to start a family.
How much money laundering happens in third world countries again?

You know oil produces more than gas, right? Do you know how much oil it takes to make solar panels? 126L/PV panel.

4)public schools are not rigorous. in japan all students regardless of background push themselves to their theoretical limits of whats possible. nothing even comes close to that in Canada.
Should we be pushing our kids to their theoretical limits? Teenage suicide in Japan is at multi-decades high levels.

5)your healthcare system while universally accessibility is becoming notoriously outdated and has a 1960's mentality. family doctors are hard to come by. there are long waiting times to see a specialist doctor.
Sure, because it hasn't been funded enough.

Maybe this is why?

Since this is a space of (mostly) free speech and since it has to do with Canada... love your new avatar @Marduk.

But then again, I love British Columbia too... one of my favourite get-aways.
Me too. Love the mountains. Ski quite a bit. Love BC. Not a big fan of Vancouver though, not sure why. Always liked Seattle better for some reason.

Victoria is awesome though. And the northern coast is stunning.

Have you ever actually lived in a 3rd world country? If you had, you would not be asking such a silly question.

I worked @ Detroit a few years and we’d go over to Canada when time permitted. Not much different than the US on the surface. I’ve traveled for business a lot in Mexico, Asia.

Not in the realm of 3rd world.

Lol, it’s not. We’re regularly #1 or #2 on lists of best places to live. In most ways that matter, we’re just like America. We share many core values, a language, democracy, we value education and freedom and enterprise. We share much more than we differ on. And we have our problems, too. We’re not a utopia.

But damn, go to an actual third world country and grab a clue. Imagine living in an actual 3rd world country and reading that post - from a Canadian. What an FU to their problems.

I could understand if he lived in Balitmore.
