A few people are thinking of Canada after the election here in the US. As a Canadian who has come the other direction, I say "Not so fast, my non-metric system adopting friend". I'm not saying that idea is stupid and childish [Yes you are - inner monologue]....but I moved here because I admired the free speech, which, in theory, is better in the US than Canada. Plus, do you really want to live where football has three downs? I might add that I find several things about the election here I did not like, but I don't think it's time to flee. If you're worried, pick up a copy of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. If you find the country you are in is getting too much like this Canadian authors nightmare nation, you can start thinking about packing a lot of sweaters and moving north. Although it looks big on the map, it's mostly tundra and igloos. A word of warning - whatever you do, do not criticize Anne Murray, or they will set you adrift on an ice floe in Hudson Bay.
