    Canada is just like a sheep; it follows everything the USA does, and doesn't. ...Canada has no initiative on its own.
    The only thing we're good at, is to stay real quiet. ...Say nothing, see nothing, hear nothing, and not guilty of anything.
    We only know of no wrongdoing.

    I have equipment in my office made by the same company that has some metric and some English driver sizes. It is absolutely maddening.

    Yes, same here, I have to carry tools of the two different systems! ...Some cars are metrically built, while others are Englishly done!
