Moving to Canada?

November 13, 2008 - Meg Alexander
I've heard people — conservatives — say with Barack Obama elected to be the next U.S. president, they're tempted to flee to Canada. My response (before now) has been to raise my eyebrow and bite my tongue.

But really, I'm starting to wonder. Maybe it's just me, but I thought it was well known that Canadians as a lot are ... liberal.

Example No. 1) Canada allows same-sex marriage, a concept rejected even in California, a state previously considered by some to be one our nation's most progressive.

Example No. 2) Canada has government health care.

Those are two big whoppers that make most conservatives in this nation cringe. I'm sure most aren't serious when they talk about fleeing to our northern neighbor, but I'm not seeing the joke, at least not as it's intended.
