Originally Answered: In what ways is Canada better than the US?
This really isn’t even a valid question.
USA – the singularly most expensive and non-trustable health care in the world. 70% of all bankruptcies in USA are because of health care bills.
Canada – Free-to-the user. NO CHARGES.
Canada – 81 years, among the longest living peoples in the world
USA – 78 years the lowest in the OECD, by a WIDE margin.
USA – Six weeks, no pay and if you don’t come back in six weeks, your job is gone.
Canada – One full year with “almost” full pay. Your job is guaranteed to be there for up to two years.
USA – No. 34 in high school educational standards
Canada – consistently among the highest four in the world.
USA – the singularly most expensive in the world. A four year degree can cost up to USD400,000
Canada – Free (Quebec) or very reasonably priced. All applicants that qualify can study – having wealthy parents is not necessary.
USA puts more prisoners (on a per capita basis) in jail than the any other country, by a factor of seven. 50% of all released prisoners are in jail again within 18 months
Canada – has among the lowest prisoner population and lowest repeat crime rates in the world
USA – I look after me, and you look after yourself. A general “population selfishness” which most persons, from any other country, cannot understand
Canada – Who cares, we pay our taxes and live our lives peacefully
USA – NONE, absolutley no guaranteed vacation time, and many don’t get any.
Canada: Varies between provinces. Most employees start with two fully paid weeks and it goes up from there.
Standard of living:
USA – VERY UNEVEN, with the great majority living poorly by European or Canadian standards. 49% of Americans cannot pay an unexpected $400 bill without borrowing money this week. (Source: The Economist, this week’s issue.)
Canada – Uniformly high with far lesser difference between high and average paying jobs. Not that it matters to you, I hope, but minimum wage is up to double what it is in some US states.
I can go on…
