Indeed, Canada overtook the United States in Fraser’s rankings in 2005. Fraser calls Canada the freest country in the world among those with over 10 million residents; Heritage puts Canada second among large countries, behind Australia.

It comes as no surprise to me.

The Conservatives in America have blundered their country into oblivion. Canada is more careful, more thoughtful, and thus, in a better position to thrive in the future.

The tricky part is to let them benefit from our success, without letting them corrupt the process and make the same mistakes here, that they made there.

Oh yeah, and never, ever, turn off the taps for the oil!

I see Canada as freer for new comers than for those born here. Australia protects the things Aussies hold dear. People are told to come, but newcomers become Australian not the other way round.
