Canada created 10,000 more jobs than the U.S. did in June, according to jobs reports released today. The nation of under 34 million people reported 28,400 new jobs in June, while the 312 million person U.S. created just 18,000.  That is a striking statistic. Canada’s unemployment rate is now almost two full percentage points lower than ours, 7.4% compared with our 9.2% 

President Obama cancelled another family vacation he had planned for this weekend, this one to Montana. Probably a good idea. Three electoral votes, but too close to Canada. The population may be thinning.

    Take away national health and their economy is not so different from ours. Their banks however did not “lever up” like ours did and they have more mortagage protections in place that prevented a housing crisis. Canada also benefits from high oil prices.
