1. ## Integral type of Canada

What type do you think is Canada?

[/img]

2. Never been there, never met any Canadians.

ENFp. Friendly, open, helpful, non-threatening, comforting, private, etc. (or maybe INFj).

Just for fun I'll take a shot at this and say Winnepeg is delta and Victoria is gamma.
But I assume Canada was different from the states?

8. As is a base unit, the definition of the ampere is not tied to any other electrical unit. The definition for the ampere is equivalent to fixing a value of the permeability of vacuum to μ0 = 4π×10−7 H/m. Prior to 1948, the so-called "international ampere" was used, defined in terms of the electrolytic deposition rate of silver. The older unit is equal to 0.999 85 A.

The ampere is most accurately realized using an ampere balance, but is in practice maintained via Ohm's Law from the units of voltage and resistance, the volt and the ohm, since the latter two can be tied to physical phenomena that are relatively easy to reproduce, the Josephson junction and the quantum Hall effect, respectively.

The unit of electric charge, the coulomb, is defined in terms of the ampere: one coulomb is the amount of electric charge (formerly quantity of electricity) carried in a current of one ampere flowing for one second. Current (electricity), then, is the rate at which charge flows through a wire or surface. One ampere of current (I) is equal to a flow of one coulomb of charge (Q) per second of time (t).

The main purpose behind many zoos is conservation. A way to protect and perpetuate species that are in danger. Also to educate. But I agree, I don't much like a lot of zoos with their tiny cages and etc.
I know... but being there still makes me sad

Winnepeg was much more like North Dakota and Minnesota than either of those states are like Texas or California or North Carolina.
No offense Diana but that is a superficial perspective in my view.

The nature of the economy in Canada, the cultural icons, what people seek in life, are quite different from the states.

One example are hockey and besaball:

its' impossible to make Canadians like baseball and quite hard to sell hockey to americans.

People in Canada make fun of the Americans about things like guns, arrogance, flag waving and the like. And they fun of those very same things whether in Winnipeg or Victoria.

By the way I lived in Victoria for a while. Did you stay there long Diana?

13. By the way, Canada's national animal is the beaver, compare that to the Bold Eagle.

It seems I should have put it there long ago. Apparently there are a lot of people who had no idea, and believe it or not, actually thought exactly the opposite.

18. Again, I still think that those similarities are superficial. If you live in landlocked cold plain like Dakota or Winipeg of course you will play hockey and not go out surfing much. Also the accents will become similar since people in the area interact on a daily basis, people go south for gass and americans come up for turism etc.

However, the main aspects like ideas of individual freedoms and rights, role of governent, role of the army and so forth are still quite different.

I would like to know your view of those differences.

People are people everywhere, but they don't live i nthe same away everywhere.

Your grammar and syntax often imply "exactly the opposite," so I don't see how you could possibly blame anyone other than yourself for this misperception.

That is not in cotradiction to my views, clearly Canada is not a monolith of identical world views. It varies within Canada too.

23. Nothing stops us from expressing view. You are right though: countries don't have types, you can't type them.

so... It took 2 pages to come to this conclusion? I coulda said that in the 2nd post of this thread.

I said it in the 5th post of the thread (my first post)
Guys the statement is nuanced: we can express a view of the type of a country, but the country is not human, so it can't be placed in a human category.

So go ahead, express an opinion, much in the same way as the opinion you expressed about Victoria and Winnipeg Diana.

What's done is done. There shouldn't be any confusion anymore.

They even speak alike. I wasn't able to tell a Canadian from a North Dakotan or Minnesotan by their accents when I was up there, but I sure could tell the difference between them and a Californian, Texan, Tenesseean, or New Yorker.
That makes sense but Canada is geographically a BIG country so I hope you don't think all Canadians speak with that accent? people in the maritime provinces, Quebec, Major Urban centres and rural communities all have noticably different accents. Rather than splitting north america according to the US-Canadian border (horizontally) it makes more sense to ignore the border and instead divide the continent vertically (i.e. timezones) If you do this you notice, for example, people in BC are quite similar to people in Washington state (notice the rockies separate them from the east but not from eachother), people in Mantoba are similar to those in Minnesota, those in new brunswick are like those in maine.

In other words what you meant was that you couldn't tell a Manitoban from a North Dakotan (our provinces are kinda like states, we're not all the same, haha

and yah the only reason i corrected you was because i was bored and could sense your curiousity for candian history and culture, careful not to get too excited!
