Is Canada North America? Surely so.
From memory a few days ago, the US vax rate is about 60% and the Canadian vax rate is approaching 70%. Many surplus COVID vax tubes were sent to Canada from the US. Canada doesn't manufacture vaccine at all. I am sure Canadians are thankful but why is there such a surplus in the US when so many are not vaccinated. Yes, I do know why.
Googling slave trade in Canada gives me very equivocal answers and it seems Canada did have black African slaves.
So that does not explain why the US and Canada are so different.
Please offer your opinion. I am interested. As I recall seeing the congestion on bridge crossing at Niagara Falls indicating there is a strong border control. But Canadians like to cross the border to buy cheap goods in the US and take them home. Responsible Canadians pay their taxes on goods that cost a good bit more than they do in the US.
I am just thinking aloud. But I will really like to know thoughts about why Canada and the US are such different countries?
