Ebbie, Canadians are only nice guys to keep from murdering each other. One reason why Canadians have no history is that each faction has a history that demonizes the other, so it all remains suspended in amber. The only reason the country has not turned into Bosnia is a series of agonizing near misses over a hundred years or more. It is all a facade: who made it up Vimy Ridge in World War One, and slogged through Normandy in World War Two, and wandered around in Korea...? When you want to send in killers, who do you call? Canadians. The nice Canadian is a myth.
