i think it's really funny!  living in metro Detroit (15 min away from the border),and knowing some canadians and canadian culture helps


I also live in metro Detroit (probably 30 mins from Windsor border, 45 mins from Sarnia border). I do know the most important thing there is for americans to know about Canada... the legal drinking age is 19!  I made very good use of that info many, many moons ago when I actually turned 19.

The small town I live in, in Ontario is about 40 mins from Fort Drum/Watertown, NY.
So we get lots of 19 year old Americans visiting our fine drinking establishments on Friday/Saturday nights.

Doesn't it just warm your heart to see American youth so keen on visiting Canada?  ;)
