As there is a topic "Quotes of the Founding Fathers (US)" I though I would start a topic of Famous Canadian Quotes. Some are funny, some are nasty, and some are poignant in that they define what Canada and her people are. The first one is:

" We will explaind the appeal of Curling to you if you explain the appeal of the National Rifle Association to us: Andy Barrie

"Our forms of Government- though both cast in the Democratic pattern-are greatly different. Indeed, sometimes it appears that many of our misunderstandings spring from an imperfect knowledge on the part of both of us of the dissimilarities in our forms of government" 1958 address to Parliament by Dwight D. Eisenhower

Hey Camac, great idea, but do you know any quotes on Canada that DON'T have to do with the United States opinion of us? They have their own thread. wink.gif

"I am a Canadian by birth, but I am a Highlander by blood and feel under an obligation to do all I can for the sake of the Highlanders and their literature.... I have never yet spoken a word of English to any of my children. They can speak as much English as they like to others, but when they talk to me they have to talk in Gaelic."

-Alexander Maclean Sinclair of Goshen (protector of Gaelic Culture)
