Merci to our Canadian cousins

By Mark Rhoads

Too often Americans take our neighbors to the north for granted. Canada, not China, is our most important trading partner and almost all governments of Canada in recent years under both Liberals and Tories have been solid and supportive allies of the United States. But our special relationship with the people of Canada is more than just an alliance of two neighbors. On the Canadian observance of the tenth anniversary of Sept. 11, Prime Minister Stephen Harper referred to “our American cousins” and the emotional ties we have with not just friends or business partners but actual blood relatives that can be found in states from Maine to Washington.

We should never take such good friends for granted. They, like us, love freedom. Some of their socialist governments have made mistakes in the past, but Prime Minister Harper and his new conservative majority in Parliament are setting things right again. Thank you and merci mille fois for your friendship.
