The Lyrics

Way
America's lost its way
It had its day
There is a lot to say
Say
Rights are being betrayed
Keep self-esteem
We still have a dream

Seniors tired of high drug costs
They're coming up to Canada
Health care is free for all
They're coming up to Canada
Crime, don't it seem so far away
Oh, we're traveling to Cuba
Because it is legal
For all Canadians
No more contradictory laws
Let's expose, America's flaws
Gun control is the law
Gun control is the law

Everywhere in the U.S.
They're coming up to Canada
Same sex couples getting hitched
They're coming up to Canada
No felonious pot laws
They're coming up to Canada
Got a dream that is revived

They're coming up to Canada
They're coming up to Canada
They're coming up to Canada
They're coming up to Canada
They're coming up to Canada

Today, today, today, today, today

Our true and native land
Today
We stand on guard for thee
Today
O Canada
Today
O Canada
Today

Well done, Tim - you raise a lot of good issues. I agree with your point about pot - the US "war on drugs" creates more problems than it solves, and Canada has slightly more reasonable laws than we do. I think that your point on health care is backwards, though. More Canadians come to the US because of health care shortages and long waits for surgeries than there are Americans going to Canada for free drugs.

As they say in Canada...He shoots, he scores! (Or, as they say in Quebec, "Très bien fait, monsieur.") Somebody get this man two dozen Tim Hortons and a case of Moosehead, eh!

Exchange rate of the Canadian dollar to the US dollar = 1.02 Canadian dollars for one American dollar
