    Personally I put them behind Cubans and the Irish, although you could make a strong argument for the Dutch, just because many of them can speak so many dam languages!

    The U.S. should just annex that country and get it over with. [JOKE]

    Brits and Canuks are some of the best affiliates.

    I think Canadians on the whole are very modest, even tending towards self-deprication, so it is of course ironic for a Canadian to be asking whether we are the greatest people on earth. Any true Canadian would understand that, and anybody from the States who are not as enlightened as us Canadians (see - there's that modesty again) would naturally take the question as a thinly veiled boast about our national character.

    The long and the short of it is, we are the greatest, because when we make such a claim, everyone who knows Canada, knows we are only joking - I think....actually maybe I'm just confused...so who are the greatest - is it really the Americans? :-)
