prince edward island: Canada is a Great Country - 02/21/09 08:39 AM
The country of Canada is made up of 10 provinces and 3 territories. It doesn't have the biggest economy in the world, but, in my humble view,  it is the greatest country.
Some facts on Canada:
- Canada doesn't have the greatest army in the world, but it is powerful because it is the largest supplier of crude oil to the United States of America.
- It has a government run, universal health care for all of its citizens.
- Canada has the most stable banking system in the world.
- Canada is a strong believer in the Rights of Minorities.
