    We only have 40 million people here, so if they decided to invade we’d be screwed

    Problem with Canadians is people show up with attitudes looking to tear us down and a few hours later they’re hungover and in love with Canada

    Didn't Canadians burn the white house down once before?

    Yes

    Fun fact, until the First World War, Canada was the more populous country, after the US went on an immigration rampage and grew to 10x its population - Canada was equally matched militarily when the US invaded and we kicked their asses and burned down the White House

    #45 will be the death of us all. Trade War. Can't blame Canada one little bit.

    That is wildly inaccurate...between the years 1860 and 1870 the U.S. population surpassed the current Canadian population figure. The rest of your post is wrong as well, but this is the most glaring error.

    My knowledge is reasonably limited on the subject

    The US population may have been bigger than Canada, but it wasn’t tenfold, it was comparable

    They burned a white house but not the White House. They went to the wrong address because they thought that Pennsylvania referred to the state, instead of an avenue. :gjob:

    British troops burned the White House...and while the British are the European overlords of Canadians, Canadians really shouldn't have to take the blame for this destruction.

    It’s before Canada was Canada

    And it was the White House, but it wasn’t white at the time, it was pink, so really, Canada did the US a favour there
