Strange? In top ranks for country, cities, banks, economy, and far lower crime rates than U.S. With incredible standard of living. Real estate up for decades not down. Universal medical covverage for decades. Best debt ratings. Vancouver consistently ranked # 1 city in the world. Whistler ranked number 1 ski resort. And now BB10 phone best. I like their strange compared to where the U.S. is lately, and have not met a single Canadian lately who would move, which is big change from a decade ago. Buy Blackberry it is like Canada, solid, real and beautiful!
