I am curious about how Canada is perceived in your classes at a High School level if seen at all and by media around the country? To be honest I know each country has arrogant and ignorant people, Canada does too but if one thing is for certain the amount of bashing made towards Canada by Americans on the Internet is surprisingly high to say the least. From YouTube comments on certain videos to the more recent event that occurred tonight while my sister was playing an MMORPG. The discussion in the chat box somehow turned to a full open Canada bashing night where it seemed an army of mentally 8 years old had been unleashed and their mission was to say the most ignorant comments on Canada and the worst is while they are the most ignorant comments one could see, I often end up finding them to be the ones the most said overall as such I am starting to be curious as to why and where these comments find their roots especially since some seem to truly believe they are saying the truth too? While Canadians at times find and say things about USA that aren't overly nice either I tend to see that we at least can recognize the USA for positive things too but like tonight not one of the Americans online (they were well over 10) didn't seem to show any signs of joking or even knowing Canada for more than what they were saying. I have heard multiple times the joke about Canada being the hat of USA or us living all in igloos but they are jokes in most cases except that some I have seen seem to almost believe them as truth which is slightly scary to imagine such beliefs about a country still true today especially when they are technically allies... I am pretty certain I am dealing with a minority but it pushes me to question myself on where they ended up finding such comments as to even call us like one of them said a non-existing country which in itself is pretty damn amusing since if we didn't exist might as well tell me what I am? As such my question is where does Americans get these supposedly facts on Canada? Do you guys get them from classes, media or your parents? I am not putting all Americans in the same boat and I'd like to make myself clear on that, I have met wonderful people who were Americans who weren't ignorant about my country but in all honesty out on the Internet the ignorant one seem to be the most talkative ones as such they appear as a majority when looking at it quickly but to see so many have the same statements they must be getting them from somewhere?
