1. Canadians are really nice (hello Dino, Christian if you are reading)
They are also very funny, most of the 'US' comedians are actually Canadians. It's also such a beautiful country, with warm people, some of the nicest taxi drivers etc. I have ever met in my travels
2. James Lovelock says it will be the only inhabitable bit of that continent by the end of the century. He must be quite convincing on the subject because apparently politicians and academics kept approaching him on his speaker tour to promote 'Revenge of Gaia' asking how far north in Canada they should buy a home/some land!
3. They seem to produce so much of the interesting green content, design, architecture & etc. I've not totted it up but it sometimes seems like about half of treehugger, worldchanging reports are from Canada.
Random example; I got sent a link to this today which looks like an amazing info resource zerofootprint
Declaration of interest: my uncle was a big dinosaur geologist in the rockies near Alberta, it's always occupied a special (Indiana jones esque) place in my imagination.
