We also make better beer and hockey players too. But our money sucks :D . No wonder most Americans call it Monopoly money.

Things are changing, though. I think your unemployment is a lot lower than ours now, and your money was going up last I looked.

However, our micro brews are excellent nowadays. Better than anywhere except Belgium. But to make up for it, Belgium has the worst light pollution of any country.

As for spaceports there is the Churchill Rocket Research Range. (http://www.spacetoday.org/Rockets/Spaceports/Canada.html)
It was privitized, but was unable to secure orbital launch contracts or an investor. It is now owned by the gov't of manitoba. It is/was one of the launch options for the Xprize team-Arrow.

Canada can't have any rocket launch facilities. It would make the Russians think the USA was launching ICBM's and would cause a nuclear war. :roll: ;) :roll: :lol:

We wouldn't mind. The missiles go over us and land somewhere to the south... :wink:
