4 years after his passing, a quote from former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau

"It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from there."

Never more apt...

Another good one from Trudeau (sorry, but I'm on a bit of a quote hunt, dunno why)

"Americans should never underestimate the constant pressure on Canada which the mere presence of the United States has produced. We're different people from you and we're different people because of you. Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered is the beast, if I can call it that, one is effected by every twitch and grunt. It should not therefore be expected that this kind of nation, this Canada, should project itself as a mirror image of the United States. "
- (Prime Minister) Pierre Elliot Trudeau
