    Jul 15 2011: If anything it's the great Canadian tendency to denigrate ourselves or be overly modest, to the point of being seen as unworthy of praise.
    • Jul 15 2011: I think you're right Michael. Thanks for the serious answer. I agree that modesty is nice, but it can hurt you too. It leads others to think you're a push over rather than an autonomous entity with self determining powers, sovereignty and something to offer the world (other than our natural resources).
