I just finished playing ultimate with no substitutions in very hot weather. It's also Canada Day. In my slightly delirious state, I decided to combine the two - so here is my take on why there is no substitute for Canada.
Because Canadians can be proud of where they're from when they travel abroad.
Because we have the population of California in a country larger than the United States.
Because when we go to the hospital the first question we are asked is not "do you have insurance?"
Because 'eh' and 'aboot' are the worst things people can think to say about us.
Because I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.
