Fifteen per cent of Canadians would give up their ballot in Canada's next federal election to vote in the U.S. election. That's amazing to me. Although I do care who is elected because it does make a difference to Canadians believe it or not, I wouldn't give up my vote here. Would anyone give up the vote in their country to vote in the US election?

I'm with you spark! I am Canadian Hey, I am not a lumber jack or a fur trader, and I don't live in an igloo or eat blubber or own a dog sled, and I don't know Jimmy, Sally or Suzie from Canada although I am certain they're really really nice, uh I have a Prime Minster not a president. I speak English and French, not American, and I pronounce it about, not a boot. I can proudly sew my countries flag on my back pack, I believe in peace keeping not policing, diversity not assimilation, and that the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal. A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch. And it is pronounced zed, not zee, zed. Canada is the second largest landmass, the first nation of hockey, and the best part of North America, my name is Joe, and I am Canadian. Thank You.

Hey Joe! Did you know that Canada is also the ONLY country in the world to repel invasion from the United States not once, not twice but THREE times!? They erected a statue to their 'freedom', but Canada was the ONLY country to accept their runaway slaves, to take back their French speaking peoples and is always the FIRST to offer help in times of crisis and disaster? Yes. We are Canadian and I wouldn't change that for the world. Even though I want to live and die in England! LOL

I never vote for the Liberal or the Conservative or NDP candidates, nor do I vote for the Communist or the Green Party, the two fringe types. I vote for the party who has Christian traditional value morals even though he does not stand a chance of winning. If there was a ruling that if there were no candidates in Canada in that particular party that we could vote for in the US election then the only way that I would vote is if that candidate is pro=life, marriage between men and women, etc, but that would be the only reason and it would be temporarily. But so far Canada and the United States are still separate countries and the only way I could have voted for the U.s. candidate was if I was able to move and live permanently in the States and take out U.S. citizenship.
