I'd say Americans often have to respond to conditions within the US. But even at a more fundamental level, the very notion of Canadian nationalism is problematic because of several historical reasons. Also, embracing nationalism and implicit identity is again cause for alarm because that is too "American". Nationalism and culture will continue to morph because of internal and external influences that have far easier impact through globalism, immigration, media, and demographics. Looking back now, this isn't a new process considering Canada's "great flag debate" of the 50's and 60's, as an example. Some of the traditional customs and values will die with those who hold them dear. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
