If I wanted to insult someone then I would be as direct as the posters on this thread who are poking fun at American ignorance. Are you offended by them, as well?
Regardless, it is not my intention to offend anyone.
If I were to speak about New Brunswick's high dependency on federal equalisation payments, this does not mean I'm trying to offend New Brunswickers, nor would it mean that I hate New Brunswick.
It takes a humble mind to be able to love and care about something, and yet still criticise it.
You, sir, need to be a bit less 'black and white' in your thinking, and a bit more aware of your own sensitivities. Don't become angry with me if I speak of something that you, yourself, perhaps find true, and are perhaps embarrassed about. Otherwise, there is no need for you to be offended.
I think Alberta is awesome. I've thought this all my life. I'm actually half-giddy about Calgary's growth as a Canadian hot spot for industry and jobs. I'm wondering if Calgary could edge out Vancouver one day for the title of 3rd largest in the nation.
