There may be market forces operating in the US that do not operate under the 
socialism of Canada. Our mailboxes don't blow up, we already fought off the 
desire to split into two nations, and some parts of our country are actually
warm all the time. So What? That doesn't make us better than you, just 
different. Neither does your socialist medical system make you better than us. 
For each Senso sold at cost, 5000 Canadians come into the US for their medical 
care.

All things may not be exactly what they appear to be.
