Amanda- The Couple of the Year
By: Juli Smith
Welcome One And All!
We are SOOO Alike!!!
U.S. and Canada are connected socially. Actually, we're closer than we think. Most Canadians live in the lower fourth of the country, and we actually talk through mail, phone, and social media every day. (I myself have a WONDERFUL Canadian pen pal!) Lots of famous people (i.e. Justin Bieber) are Canadian, and they know all about us, too!
Yep, we are BEST friends, and we've got each other's back! Canada is our #1 security and defense partner, and we keep in touch, with more than 300,000 people crossing the border EACH DAY! While we Americans are headstrong and seem to be a part of everything, Canada has always played it cool, and opposites attract.
Do you hear that? That's the sound of $1.5 million dollars worth of goods going across the border... every minute! 8 million of our jobs depend on this country, as they're our #1 consumer... and we take our fair share as well. Every day, 8,000 trucks cross the NITC alone. You know what they say, birds of a feather DO flock together!
