A valentine to Canada from the Chicago Tribune . . . je t’adore!

Canadians aren’t so certain, but whoever wrote a recent editorial for the Chicago Tribune seems to think we’re the ‘cat’s pyjamas’.

FLAGTop 10 reasons why CHICAGO loves CANADA:
# Canada’s banks are regulated and stable.
# Canada’s housing market never collapsed like it did in the U.S.
# Canada’s health-care system is the envy of the U.S.
# Canada is experiencing a gold-rush energy boom.
# The loonie trades at an equal value to the U.S. dollar.
# Canadian PM Stephen Harper is expected to ink a free-trade agreement with the European Union that will put pressure on the U.S. to do the same.
# While Chicago roots for its Blackhawks, half the team hails from Canada.
# Low rates of gun crime.
# Our sesame seed bagels, smoked meat and Tim Hortons double doubles.
# On a per-capita basis, Canada is one of the world’s most prosperous countries.
