It seems like every time we talk to euros on here and the subject of canada comes up, they always have this bizarro version of canada in their heads that bears no resemblance to the real thing. Like they all watched Dudley Doright once and assumed it was a literal portrayal of canada.
Specifically, euros seem to think:
-that canada being fucking enormous on the map will translate to less crowded living conditions (not the case at all as most of canada is off-limits for habitation, and the areas that are available are going through the most intense housing crisis on earth)
-that they can get the best of both worlds, enjoying the opportunity of north america without the pesky american ideals they dont understand (in practice canada shares most of the social issues america has like inequality, intractable race issues, and shitty social safety nets, sometimes to an even greater degree than the US)
-some euros seem to think from the stereotypical depiction of canada as a wild frontier it will be more libertarian than what they were used to in europe (lmao)
