I'm So Glad to be Canadian
Granted, Canada isn't perfect. It's annoying to live in an igloo year-round, outrunning wolves, polar bears and snow snakes while constantly competing for food with avid hunters like Indians (native Americans) and Eskimos, but we seem to be having some economic advantages.
We were the last developed nation to enter into recession, and it's also beginning to look like we might be the first one out.
At least as far as employment is concerned, while the U.S. annouced today that they lost another 539,000 jobs in April, Canada actually gained 35,900 jobs!
