I became a proud Canadian citizen in 2002. No regrets whatsoever.

What startles me about the US is the apparent increase in blatant racism following the election of Obama - albeit entirely conservative/Republican - and the fact that half the nation can shoot down any talk of public health care simply because it was proposed by a black president. I consider Obama to be the great hope for the US - a sentiment shared by most Canadians.

Tuition in BC is around CAD $5,000 per year for an undergraduate degree - for BC residents. Tuition has remained fairly constant, after an adjustment made after the BC Liberals came into power in 2001. Before that it was unrealitically low - unless you believe that free post-secondary education is a right. Tuition cost differs a little across the country, but not too much. The way the Liberals are governing, there is a very real chance of them being hoofed out of office in the next election in 2013. If the NDP (labour) return to power, tuition may go down, but it certainly won't increase. bottom line is university/college tuition is very affordable - compared to the US.

A NDP government, of course, brings with it a host of unrelated nightmares for the province, but the current political rot definitely needs to be purged from the BC legislature - if only for one term.
