Have you ever wonder why Canada isn’t part of the United States of America? After all, the two countries are inexplicably linked, speak the same language, and share an unprotected border.

It turns out, as so often is the case, that the reason Canada isn’t part of the United States comes down to money. At least partly. Culture and religion also play a part.
Being British myself, it’s nice to know the Brits had a part to play in it all. The U.S. might have booted us out, but we still have one foot in the continent.
