I'd like to thank the many Canadians who have expressed their grief and given their
support to us in our time of trouble. Our country is strong, and it will endure this
violant act against it, and our way of live will survive. Part of our strength comes
from the great and proud people of Canada. You folks also have a great country,
one worth being proud of. I'd like to tell all of you, that this is one American who is
damn proud to have you as my neighbor. Thank you

Folks: I'm Canadian and I have something to say. We in Canada are very sorry for your loss, but it's not just your loss, it's ours too. We have had a candle light vigil, shining our headlights across the St. Clair river(the border) into Port Huron, Mich. and had prayer meetings. Cop cars are carrying stick on U.S. flags, flags are at half-staff, and business's signs have words of sympathy on them. My English war bride mother was watching the prayer service on Friday and said "Boy, those Americans sure do stick together. In an emergency, they come together so hard I can hear a thump!" She's right. But remember, we along with the U.K. will back you up all the way. God bless,from Randy at the M.F. forum.

Thanks from your Canadian Neighbors. Yes were all shocked by what has happened in the past week. I myself hope that the Canadian government has enough sense to back up the U.S.A. in whatever response they choose. I believe that we have all lost some more of our freedom. We will never really feel safe in our homeland again. I for one am ready to stand up and fight, and if they took old geezers in the army I'm ready to go. We have our little squabbles over lumber and grain potatoes ect. but when it comes down to this kind of crap we got to stick together.

I've had more Canadians log on to my web site (as tracked monthly by my web master's Metrics Reports), than any other "foreign" nation. I have included a link to a Canadian web site which is dedicated to Canadian WESTERN music. There is a direct link and connection between American and Canadian Country & WESTERN music.

Amen to the other posts. We're extremely proud of our Northern neighbors. There's a reason we have the longest unguarded border in the world.

When I've gone snowmobiling in Canada, I've always met hospitality, kindness, and friendship. They are good neighbors.

They are our best buds

We can count on the Canadians and Brits anytime.

Aint that the truth now.

It did'nt take just a little bit and Canada had checked in offering whatever support we need.

Good neighbors and good friends are hard to come by sometimes and we have both just to our north.

When the British played our National Anthym at the Palace today at Change of Guard I could'nt keep a dry eye. The report said that was the 1st time in history they had ever honored anyone else' nation at their ceremony.

Darn it Burr, ya done gone and made me agree with you again! That was one of the best renditions of the Star Spangled Banner I ever heard! My eight year old looked at me like I was silly silly when I was telling her and my wife about it, cause I kept choking up Just thinking about it.

Since our last spat with Great Britain in 1812 we have stood shoulder to shoulder with them, and I hope that will continue.

I swear it seems like our relationship with England is like a parent child relationship. We had our spats, we finally ventured out and stood on our own feet. We had one last arguement about living on our own. Came to an agreement, and have since defended each other like family-BTD

That's about right. After all, we speak the same language, have the same Judicial systems etc. Our infrastructure is almost identical.
