Thanks survival. You know how we feel about beavers up here.
Kinda like why those guys call themselves Nickleback.
Cozzy will attest that when he signed his Canuck papers a few years back they made him promise to always apologise right away, line up quietly, say thanks even to ATMs, save queens and be nice to beavers at every opportunity.

Obviously there is much about Canada to be impressed by.

What impressed me most, after moving to Toronto in 1987, after many big-city years in the US, was the little old lady getting off a street car, walking up to the driver's window of a car that had impolitely pulled into the lane reserved for pedestrians, rapping on the window and telling the driver not to do that, again.

And she didn't get punched or shot.

World's biggest beaver dam discovered in northern Canada

OTTAWA (AFP) A Canadian ecologist has discovered the world's largest beaver dam in a remote area of northern Alberta, an animal-made structure so large it is visible from space.

Researcher Jean Thie said Wednesday he used satellite imagery and Google Earth software to locate the dam, which is about 850 metres (2,800 feet) long on the southern edge of Wood Buffalo National Park.

Average beaver dams in Canada are 10 to 100 metres long, and only rarely do they reach 500 metres.

First discovered in October 2007, the gigantic dam is located in a virtually inaccessible part of the park south of Lac Claire, about 190 kilometres (120 miles) northeast of Fort McMurray.

Construction of the dam likely started in the mid-1970s, said Thie, who made his discovery quite by accident while tracking melting permafrost in Canada's far north...

As a life-long (until recently) northwest Washingtonian: I love Canada too!

Some of the coolest moments of my climbing life were hanging out with the Fire Marshall for Squamish, sharing a few stories and laughs and him leaving us feeling trusted as upstanding citizens even though we were from another country, albeit 100 km south...

Thanks Canada, for Squamish, your own version of sex appeal, Old Style (and reluctantly) Wildcat, and just being able to drive 50 miles north and see what other cultures are up to.

Oh, and at 18, hitting the strip-bar across the border from Western Washington State College was love at first sight.
