Canada quotes by Wayne Rogers
#1. There is a big cry in California to stop everyone from running to Canada. #Quote by Wayne Rogers
Canada quotes by Brian Day
#2. The Supreme Court of Canada has given prisoners the "right" to vote. Is it not time that non-jailed citizens were given reciprocity with a "right" that prisoners have; namely the freedom to bypass the public system when it fails to provide reasonable access? #Quote by Brian Day
Canada quotes by William Shatner
#3. I did some professional radio acting as a teenager, and I essentially put myself through college with radio acting in Montreal. When I graduated, I got jobs in professional theatres, repertory, and stock theatres in Canada for a couple of years. And then I went to Stratford, Ontario, where I spent three years with a Shakespeare company. We took a classical play from Stratford to New York City, and I got some good notices there and essentially stayed and did live television. And that brings you to the beginning of filming. #Quote by William Shatner
Canada quotes by Alice Munro
#4. One thing in the school was captivating, lovely. Pictures of birds. Rose didn't know if the teacher had climbed up and nailed them above the blackboard, too high for easy desecration, if they were her first and last hopeful effort, or if they dated from some earlier, easier time in the school's history. Where had they come from, how had they arrived there, when nothing else did, in the way of decoration, illustration?

A red-headed woodpecker; an oriole; a blue jay; a Canada goose. The colors clear and long-lasting. Backgrounds of pure snow, of blossoming branches, of heady summer sky. In an ordinary classroom they would not have seemed so extraordinary. Here they were bright and eloquent, so much at variance with everything else that what they seemed to represent was not the birds themselves, not those skies and snows, but some other world of hardy innocence, bounteous information, privileged lightheartedness. No stealing from lunch pails there; no slashing coats; no pulling down pants and probing with painful sticks; no fucking; no Franny. #Quote by Alice Munro
Canada quotes by Vincent Massey
#5. I have had what might be called a post graduate course in the most important subject for all Canadians - Canada itself. #Quote by Vincent Massey
Canada quotes by Earl Nightingale
#6. How are you coming with your home library? Do you need some good ammunition on why it's so important to read? The last time I checked the statistics...I think they indicated that only four percent of the adults in this country have bought a book within the past year. That's dangerous. It's extremely important that we keep ourselves in the top five or six percent.
In one of the Monthly Letters from the Royal Bank of Canada it was pointed out that reading good books is not something to be indulged in as a luxury. It is a necessity for anyone who intends to give his life and work a touch of quality. The most real wealth is not what we put into our piggy banks but what we develop in our heads. Books instruct us without anger, threats and harsh discipline. They do not sneer at our ignorance or grumble at our mistakes. They ask only that we spend some time in the company of greatness so that we may absorb some of its attributes.

You do not read a book for the book's sake, but for your own.

You may read because in your high-pressure life, studded with problems and emergencies, you need periods of relief and yet recognize that peace of mind does not mean numbness of mind.

You may read because you never had an opportunity to go to college, and books give you a chance to get something you missed. You may read because your job is routine, and books give you a feeling of depth in life.

You may read because you did go to college.

#Quote by Earl Nightingale
Canada quotes by Irving Layton
#7. In Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Canada has at last produced a political leader worthy of assassination. #Quote by Irving Layton
Canada quotes by George Vecsey
#8. Hockey historians say the handshake dates to English settlers in Canada, who preached an upper-class version of sportsmanship in the 19th century. Soon, tough kids in urban and prairie rinks began imitating imagined dukes and earls of the old country. #Quote by George Vecsey
Canada quotes by Jeff Ross
#9. Last time I was in Canada Celine Dion had just given birth to identical twins. Which is quite an achievement given her age and face. #Quote by Jeff Ross
Canada quotes by Jeremy Hotz
#10. Hockey is our big sport, and if you fight in hockey you get five minutes for it, that's it. So in Canada, everyone is fighting. #Quote by Jeremy Hotz
Canada quotes by Kaimana Wolff
#11. I was never the mythic lucky-born after all, the post-war harbinger of hope, peace and progress. That hope and faith grew in parental minds. It all fell apart when we moved to Canada. We brought the War with us, tattooed on our souls. #Quote by Kaimana Wolff
Canada quotes by Allen Steck
#12. I often think of those marvelous weeks spent in the Waddington Range in 1950. 2 new routes on the northern side of the peak and the 3rd ascent of the mountain as well. Waddington is one of the more beautiful peaks in all of Canada and it's only 175 miles north of Vancouver. B.C.!! #Quote by Allen Steck
Canada quotes by Geoffrey Canada
#13. Lots of boys pick strong messages about who they are and who they want to be from the media. #Quote by Geoffrey Canada
Canada quotes by Kathy Reichs

Canada quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#15. There was a super-8 steel town somewhere, where all the forgotten things in the cruel world ended up eventually, Mandy was sure of it ... this place, she decided, was called Smog City. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Canada quotes by Robertson Davies
#16. Canada has one of the highest rates of insanity in any civilized country and one reason might be that life in many places is so desperately dull. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Canada quotes by Himani Bannerji
#17. It is interesting that the rhetoric and some state initiatives of multiculturalism in the West are accompanied by the gathering strength of right wing politics....Everywhere in the West 'immigration,' a euphemistic expression for racist labor and citizenship policies, has become a major election platform....The media and some members of the Canadian intelligentsia speak in terms of the end of 'Canadian culture,' displaying signs of feeling threatened by these 'others,' who are portrayed as an invasive force. In the meantime, Western capital roves in a world without borders, with trade agreements such as GATT and NAFTA ensuring their legal predations, while labour from third world countries is both locked in their national spaces and locked out from Western countries, marked by a discourse of illegality and alienness. #Quote by Himani Bannerji
Canada quotes by Cory Monteith
#18. I'm Joe Canada, who never went to high school. I've never even been to a football game. #Quote by Cory Monteith
Canada quotes by Geoffrey Canada
#19. Poverty places not just one or two obstacles but multiple obstacles in a child's pathway to what we would consider to be regular development - cognitively, intellectually and emotionally. #Quote by Geoffrey Canada
Canada quotes by Esi Edugyan
#20. The cabbie's eyes sort of glazed over. Canada kills any conversation quick, I learned long ago. It's a little trick of mine. #Quote by Esi Edugyan
Canada quotes by Geoffrey Canada
#21. I graduated from Bowdoin College and went to the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Then I left and took a job teaching really poor inner-city white kids in Boston. It was interesting to me because I'd never been around poor whites before. #Quote by Geoffrey Canada
Canada quotes by Eric Nicol
#22. Clearly, if Confederation is to survive another 100 years, Canada must find a national esprit de corps. Cohesion cannot depend indefinitely on hating Toronto. #Quote by Eric Nicol
Canada quotes by Michael Ondaatje
#23. In Canada pianos needed water. You opened up the back and left a full glass of water, and a month later the glass would be empty. Her father had told her about the dwarfs who drank only at pianos, never in bars. #Quote by Michael Ondaatje
Canada quotes by David Suzuki
#24. Come on Canada, it's time to kick our bad habits and get into shape! #Quote by David Suzuki
Canada quotes by Karen Joy Fowler
#25. One morning I was bicycling to class when a large flock of Canada geese passed overhead. I couldn't see them, or much of anything else, but I heard the jazzy honking. #Quote by Karen Joy Fowler
Canada quotes by R. Lee Ermey
#26. I don't have any respect at all for the scum-bags who went to Canada to avoid the draft or to avoid doing their fair share. #Quote by R. Lee Ermey
Canada quotes by Pierre Trudeau
#27. Canadians should realise when they are well off under the Monarchy. For the vast majority of Canadians, being a Monarchy is probably the only form of government acceptable to them. I have always been for parliamentary democracy and I think the institution of Monarchy with the Queen heading it all has served Canada well. #Quote by Pierre Trudeau
Canada quotes by Philip Zimbardo
#28. Boys are 30 percent more likely than girls to drop out of school. In Canada, five boys drop out for every three girls. Girls outperform boys now at every level, from elementary school to graduate school. #Quote by Philip Zimbardo
Canada quotes by Fredrik Backman
#29. When Peter got injured in Canada and Kira started work, Peter was left at home alone with Isak. One day the child had a stomach ache and wouldn't stop screaming. Panic-stricken, Peter tried everything. He rocked him and took him out in the stroller and tried all the home remedies he had ever heard of, but nothing worked. Until he put a record on. Perhaps it was something about the old record player - the crackle in the speakers, the voices filling the room - but Isak fell completely silent. Then he smiled. And then he fell asleep in Peter's arms. That's the last time Peter can remember really feeling like a good father. The last time he had been able to tell himself that he actually knew what he was doing. He's never told Kira that, has never told anyone. But now he buys records in secret because he keeps hoping that feeling my come back, if only for a moment #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Canada quotes by Tommy Orange
#30. All the way from the top of Canada, the top of Alaska, down to the bottom of South America, Indians were removed, then reduced to a feathered image. Our greats are on flags, jerseys, and coins. #Quote by Tommy Orange
Canada quotes by Thomas D'Arcy McGee
#31. We should strengthen the faith of our people in their own future, the faith of every Canadian in Canada, and of every province in its sister province. This faith wrongs no one; burdens no one; menaces no one; dishonors no one; and, as it was said of old, faith moves mountains, so I venture reverently to express my own belief that if the difficulties of our future as a dominion were as high as the peaks of the Alps or Andes, yet that the pure patriotic faith of a united people would be all sufficient to overcome and ultimately to triumph over all such difficulties. #Quote by Thomas D'Arcy McGee
Canada quotes by Ted Nugent
#32. Only thing worse than a Frenchman is a Frenchman who lives in Canada #Quote by Ted Nugent
Canada quotes by Jean Chretien
#33. Obviously, I would have been happier if Canada had not been conquered in the past by the English, if this part of North America had remained French, but you can't rewrite history. #Quote by Jean Chretien
Canada quotes by Romeo LeBlanc
#34. As I assume my responsibilities as your representative, I wish to assure you of my loyalty and devotions, as well of my determination to serve you and the people of Canada to the utmost of my abilities. #Quote by Romeo LeBlanc
Canada quotes by Bobby Orr
#35. Growing up in Canada, most kids from Canada dream of playing in the NHL, and they also hope one day to be on a Stanley Cup team. That was a big goal. #Quote by Bobby Orr
Canada quotes by Brian Day
#36. In the wake of the Supreme Court of Canada decision (Chaoulli-Zeliotis), the Canadian Medicare system is about to be redesigned. Physicians must not just sit at the table, but must position themselves at the head, where they can lead and direct the nature of that design. #Quote by Brian Day
Canada quotes by Marianne Williamson
#37. When God created the world, he didn't draw a line between Canada and America. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Canada quotes by Mike Myers
#38. Canada is a country of ingredients without a cuisine; we're a country with musicians without an indigenous instrument; Toronto's a city that doesn't even have a dish named after it. #Quote by Mike Myers
Canada quotes by Brittany Bowe
#39. I remember that the first country I visited was Canada, and then France. After that, I knew that I loved traveling and seeing the world. I feel that I'm so blessed and fortunate to get to visit so many places and see the world. #Quote by Brittany Bowe
Canada quotes by Azim Premji
#40. The Indian community in Canada has integrated much better than the Indian community in United States. They've become really Canadian at the same time as keeping all their Indian characters and customs and social groups. #Quote by Azim Premji
Canada quotes by Elinor Florence
#41. I am, to my core, Canadian, so, by osmosis, everything I write reflects that upbringing. #Quote by Elinor Florence
Canada quotes by David Rakoff

Canada quotes by Chad Kroeger
#46. I guess if you split the difference between the U.K. and the U.S., you would get Canada. But that's just due to proximity. Just because of distance, we get a lot more cultural spillover from America. #Quote by Chad Kroeger
Canada quotes by Dustin Milligan
#47. It's like Canada is the little brother to the United States and one day they are going to show the world they're just as cool as their successful big brother. #Quote by Dustin Milligan
Canada quotes by George Vecsey
#48. Some anthems are great for sports. You've got the Russian national anthem ... 'O Canada,' how wonderful is that for hockey ... but I chose the Italian national song because at my first World Cup, I saw the Italians play four times, and they won all four times - they won the championship. #Quote by George Vecsey
Canada quotes by Greg Walden
#49. Operation Northern Star with Canada has made significant progress in battling meth from the north, and we are engaged in numerous training opportunities in Mexico to help curb the problem from the south. #Quote by Greg Walden

Canada quotes by Margaret Atwood

Canada quotes by Chasey Lain
#52. I didn't like dancing in Canada. The managers of the clubs treated me as less than a cow. And Canadians don't tip so you have to ask for more base pay. #Quote by Chasey Lain
Canada quotes by Virginia Woolf
#53. Murmuring London flowed up to her, and her hand, lying on the sofa back, curled upon some imaginary baton such as her grandfathers might have held, holding which she seemed, drowsy and heavy, to be commanding battalions marching to Canada, and those good fellows walking across London, that territory of theirs, that little bit of carpet, Mayfair. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Canada quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#54. I never trust anyone", Alecto told Mandy as wisps of smoke drifted from his cigarette. "Treachery is the unfortunate result of any friendships I've ever had. I don't need friends anyway, what I want is to be left alone to carry out my work ... it's a dangerous world and we're just on borrowed time, all of us ... even you. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Canada quotes by Jake Epstein
#55. I grew up in Canada and was a huge Spider-Man fan, and never thought of Spider-Man as an American hero. #Quote by Jake Epstein
Canada quotes by Geoffrey Canada
#56. If you are a lousy teacher, you should be fired. #Quote by Geoffrey Canada
Canada quotes by Tom Mulcair
#57. An NDP government will establish, in law, clear criteria for resource extraction and transportation based on the principles of sustainable development, which include internalizing all pollution costs and putting a price on carbon. In our day and age there is no longer any way around it. Any new energy project requires a thorough, credible environmental assessment process, based on criteria of sustainable development and social acceptability. We don't have one in Canada, because the Conservatives have gutted all the relevant existing legislation and reduced the staff responsible for enforcing it. #Quote by Tom Mulcair
Canada quotes by Patti LaBelle
#58. I love Canadians because I don't see very much racism in Canada. #Quote by Patti LaBelle
Canada quotes by Conan O'Brien

Canada quotes by O.R. Melling
#60. I was fortunate in that I attended university in Canada in the early 1970s when you could take a true liberal arts degree with no programmes, majors or minors. #Quote by O.R. Melling
Canada quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#61. Creosote made Mandy think of the thrill of rushing through a garden sprinkler as a kid, of playing washer toss in the backyard, of spending nights in the neighbors' huge in-ground swimming pool when she was twelve, throwing glow sticks in the turquoise water during Canada Day block parties. She thought of Jud for a moment, how he'd loved doing all those things when he was a kid, but how, as he got older, it was all about popularity, sports, a life of illusion… and without warning, a totally different kind of memory filled her mind – the dull feeling of her head hitting the concrete walls near the wood shop at her old high school, the sounds of kids laughing, the sharp smell of sawdust, the buzzing of electric sanders nearby, the sound of Jud laughing while he beat her up… without realizing it, she'd started crying noiselessly. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Canada quotes by Bernie Sanders
#62. Every major country on earth, whether it's the U.K., whether it's France, whether it's Canada, has managed to provide healthcare to all people as a right and they are spending significantly less per capita on health care than we are. So I do not accept the belief that the United States of America can't do that. #Quote by Bernie Sanders
Canada quotes by Aaron Douglas
#63. When I was fourteen years old, our family drove all the way from Vancouver to Newfoundland and back. I've been all across the great land of Canada. I absolutely love the Maritimes, and I'm very excited to go back, particularly in the fall when it's one of the most beautiful places on Earth. #Quote by Aaron Douglas
Canada quotes by Christopher L. Hayes
#64. Pew's Economic Mobility Project reports, "Germany is 1.5 times more mobile than the United States, Canada nearly 2.5 times more mobile, and Denmark 3 times more mobile."58 They find that the only other country with similarly low levels of mobility is our sibling in meritocracy, the birthplace of the word itself, the United Kingdom. And #Quote by Christopher L. Hayes
Canada quotes by Tara Brown
#65. I hear Canada is still free though. They ain't got slaver camps and ships. #Quote by Tara Brown
Canada quotes by Douglas Adams
#66. Every country is like a particular type of person. America is like a belligerent, adolescent boy; Canada is like an intelligent, 35-year-old woman. Australia is like Jack Nicholson. It comes right up to you and laughs very hard in your face in a highly threatening and engaging manner. #Quote by Douglas Adams
Canada quotes by Paul Cellucci
#67. But Canada remains a crucial partner in this global war on terrorism, and we are grateful for that. Canadian naval vessels, aircraft and military personnel continue anti-terrorist operations in the Persian Gulf. #Quote by Paul Cellucci
Canada quotes by Chigozie Obioma
#68. But it was abundant in Canada like leaves in a forest. #Quote by Chigozie Obioma
Canada quotes by Tom Ridge
#69. Remember back then we thought about al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan and a few other places? well, we've seen al Qaeda metastasize. It is now a global scourge. And you have the ascendancy of ISIL. The combination of those two groups
their appeal to the lone wolfs and we see them acting in Belgium and in France and in Canada and the United States so the threat factors and the nature of the threats are far more complicated and far more serious today than on September 12, 2001. #Quote by Tom Ridge
Canada quotes by John Barrasso
#70. Keystone would allow us to transport 700,000 barrels of oil a day from our northern neighbor Canada to refineries in the United States. #Quote by John Barrasso
Canada quotes by Prince Philip

Canada quotes by Thomas D'Arcy McGee
#72. If we are true to Canada, if we do not desire to become part and parcel of these people, we cannot overlook this the greatest revolution of our times. Let us remember this, that when the three cries among our next neighbours are money, taxation, blood, it is time for us to provide for our own security ... #Quote by Thomas D'Arcy McGee
Canada quotes by Kelley Armstrong
#73. Canada?" Ash said. "You didn't say it was in Canada.
"I said Ontario." (Maya)
"I thought you meant Ontario, California."
"Seriously?" Tori said,rolling her eyes. "A helicopter to California? You may be hot,but your sister clearly inherited all the brains in the family."
"Did she call me hot?" Ash whispered to me, looking more annoyed than he ever did when someone called him a jerk.
"She hasn't been on a date in six months", Derek rumbled behind us. "No offense, but as long as aren't related to her, you're fair game. Hell, even
"
Tori spun on him. "I didn't know."
"Um, wait a sec," Corey said. "So Ash is hot and I'm seriously cute? Is there a difference?"
"Yes," Hayley said, and propelled him through the line. #Quote by Kelley Armstrong
Canada quotes by Russell Peters
#74. The fans in Canada have been there since day one. They're the originals. When people say that's your roots, that's literally my roots. I've just cut this tree off and replanted it somewhere else and it started growing. But the roots are there. #Quote by Russell Peters
Canada quotes by Beatrice Rose Roberts
#75. Sing a song of Tar Ponds City, party full of lies! Four and twenty liars, seventeen hands caught in pies! When the pie was cut, Hugh Briss began to sing! Wasn't that a stonewall rat to set before the Fossil's ding? #Quote by Beatrice Rose Roberts
Canada quotes by Steven Hall
#76. There is no stillness, only change. Yesterday's here is not today's here. Yesterday's here is somewhere in Russia, in a wilderness in Canada, a deep blue nowhere out in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. It's behind the sun, it's in deep space, hundreds of thousands, millions of miles left behind. We can never wake up in the same place we went to sleep in. Our place in the universe, the universe itself, it all changes faster and faster by the second. Every one of us standing on this planet, we're all moving forwards and we're never ever coming back. The truth is, stillness is an idea, a dream. It's the thought of the friendly, welcoming lights still shining in all the places we've been forced to abandon. #Quote by Steven Hall
Canada quotes by Chris Jericho
#77. I would have to say that Canada definitely produces the best wrestlers; I don't know why. I think Canada is a big wrestling country, and there are a lot of guys who are interested in wrestling in Canada. #Quote by Chris Jericho
Canada quotes by Ethel Wilson
#78. What a land. What power these rivers were already yielding, far beyond her sight. Even a map of this country
lines arranged in an arbitrary way on a long rectangular piece of paper
stirs the imagination beyond imagination, she thought, looking at the map, as other lines differently arranged in relation to each other have not the power to stir. Each name on the map says We reached this point, by broken trail and mountains and water; and when we reached it, thus and thus we named it. #Quote by Ethel Wilson
Canada quotes by Ernest Hemingway
#79. It was when we had come back from Canada and were living in the rue Notre-Dame-des-Champs and Miss Stein and I were still good friends that Miss Stein made the remark about the lost generation. She had some ignition trouble with the old Model T Ford she then drove and the young man who worked in the garage and had served in the last year of the war had not been adept, or perhaps had not broken the priority of other vehicles, in repairing Miss Stein's Ford. Perhaps he had not realized the importance of Miss Stein's vehicle having the right of immediate repair. Anyway he had not been sérieux and had been corrected severely by the patron of the garage after Miss Stein's protest. The patron had said to him, 'You are all a génération perdue.'

'That's what you are. That's what you all are,' Miss Stein said. 'All of you young people who served in the war. You are a lost generation.'

'Really?' I said.

'You are,' she insisted. 'You have no respect for anything. You drink yourselves to death ... #Quote by Ernest Hemingway
Canada quotes by Ed Holder
#80. Through our government's updated science, technology and innovation strategy, we are making the record investments necessary to push the boundaries of knowledge, create jobs and opportunities, and improve the quality of life of Canadians. Our government's Canada Research Chairs Program develops, attracts and retains top talent researchers in Canada whose research, in turn, creates long-term social and economic benefits while training the next generation of students and researchers in Canada. #Quote by Ed Holder
Canada quotes by Rebecca McNutt
#81. Everything has a past, a voice, existed at some point, even things as small and seemingly meaningless as a house in a huge suburb. It's a house like every other house ... but at some point a family lived there, made it theirs, made it important. When people forget that history, that somebody at some point thought the house mattered, it just becomes an empty pile of nailed wood and brick and concrete that gets torn down for some strip mall or chain store to take its place ... and that's what happens more and more now, everything is disposable, always replaced with no thought at all. That's where things get lost, memories get lost, humanity slips through the cracks, because when we all fail to pay attention to the things that make up our lives, we're no longer human at all, not really. #Quote by Rebecca McNutt
Canada quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#82. A continent ages quickly once we come. The natives live in harmony with it. But the foreigner destroys, cuts down the trees, drains the water, so that the water supply is altered, and in a short time the soil, once the sod is turned under, is cropped out and, next, it starts to blow away as it has blown away in every old country and as I had seen it start to blow in Canada. The earth gets tired of being exploited. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Canada quotes by Paul Martin
#83. I rise in support of a Canada in which liberties are safeguarded, rights are protected and the people of this land are treated as equals under the law. #Quote by Paul Martin
Canada quotes by Kim Campbell
#84. I'd be prouder still to say I was Canada's 10th woman prime minister. #Quote by Kim Campbell
Canada quotes by Ann Veneman
#85. Actually, in this instance we do have probably a better tracking system than was the instance in Canada. Because this is a dairy cow, they're all individually tagged. #Quote by Ann Veneman
Canada quotes by Robin Blaser
#86. Canada's most important
that is to say consequential
modern voice. #Quote by Robin Blaser
Canada quotes by Wilfrid Laurier
#87. We French-Canadians belong to one country, Canada: Canada is for us the whole world: but the English-Canadians have two countries, one here and one across the sea. #Quote by Wilfrid Laurier
Canada quotes by Geoffrey Canada
#88. Convincing people to give your way a try will work if you neutralize - and sometimes you have to cauterize - the ones who really are against change. They're the kind of person who, if you tell them it's raining outside, they'll fight you tooth and nail. #Quote by Geoffrey Canada
Canada quotes by Stephen Harper
#89. The world is now unipolar and contains o-nly o-ne superpower. Canada shares a continent with that superpower. #Quote by Stephen Harper
Canada quotes by Ryan Holmes
#90. Everyone told me you can't build a major tech company in Canada. There just aren't enough investors or engineers or top-level managers. Each day, I'm driven to prove them wrong. #Quote by Ryan Holmes
Canada quotes by Aden Young
#91. I have great, fond memories of Canada. I feel that one day my bones will more than likely end up there. #Quote by Aden Young
Canada quotes by Harvey Fierstein
#92. When I went into 'Fiddler,' I wondered about the response I'd get - the backlash because I'm openly gay. There was none. I toured Canada and America, and not one single review suggested that I played the role gay or that I seemed anything but Tevye. #Quote by Harvey Fierstein
Canada quotes by Camille Paglia
#93. The North American intellectual tradition began, I maintain, in the encounter of British Romanticism with assertive, pragmatic North American English - the Protestant plain style in both the U.S. and Canada, with its no-nonsense Scottish immigrants. #Quote by Camille Paglia
Canada quotes by Leonard Cohen
#94. I want history to jump on Canada's spine with sharp skates. #Quote by Leonard Cohen
Canada quotes by David Foster
#95. Lightfoot's voice is such a part of the fabric of Canada, I know it almost as well as I know my own voice. #Quote by David Foster
Canada quotes by John W. Dawson
#96. Canada has two emblems - the beaver and the maple. #Quote by John W. Dawson
Canada quotes by Neal Stephenson
#97. How could your cover be blown in Canada? Why even bother going dark there? How could you tell? #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Canada quotes by Jack Layton
#98. Canada is a great country, one of the hopes of the world. #Quote by Jack Layton
Canada quotes by Linda McQuaig
#99. For society to function some kind of reasonable balance has to be stuck between the competing interests of creditors and debtors. Although the mandate of the Bank of Canada was to maintain a delicate balance between encouraging growth and fighting inflation, the Bank opted to focus exclusively on fighting inflation. In doing so it came down heavily in favour of those with financial assets to protect, and against those whose primary need was employment. #Quote by Linda McQuaig
Canada quotes by Pierre Pettigrew
#100. Canada has always been a strong supporter of China's accession to the WTO ... We look forward to playing a constructive role in helping complete China's accession. #Quote by Pierre Pettigrew
Canada quotes by Susan Straight
#101. My mother was born in Switzerland, my stepfather in Canada. #Quote by Susan Straight
Canada quotes by Johnny Carson
#102. Air Canada. That's a good name for a Canadian airline. #Quote by Johnny Carson
Canada quotes by Marian Engel
#103. The Canadian tradition was, she had found, on the whole genteel. Any evidence that an ancestor had performed any acts other than working and praying was usually destroyed. Families handily became respectable in retrospect but it was...hell on history. #Quote by Marian Engel
Canada quotes by Stephen Harper
#104. Paul Martin talks eloquently about defending national sovereignty but the reality hasn't matched the rhetoric. When it comes to the United States, Mr. Martin says he calls them as he sees them, but when it comes to American passage through Canada, he doesn't actually see anything. #Quote by Stephen Harper
Canada quotes by Amy Hempel
#105. She introduces me to a nurse as the Best Friend. The impersonal article is more intimate. It tells me that they are intimate, the nurse and my friend.
'I was telling her we used to drink Canada Dry ginger ale and pretend were were in Canada'
'That's how dumb we were,' I say.
'You could be sisters,' the nurse says.
So how come, I'll bet they are wondering, it took me so long to get to such a glorious place? But do they ask?
They do not ask.
Two months, and how long is the drive?
The best I can explain it is this - I have a friend who worked one summer in a mortuary. He used to tell me stories. The one that really got to me was not eh grisliest, but it's the one that did. A man wrecked his care on 101 going south. He did not lose consciousness. But his arm was taken down to the bone - and when he looked at it - it scared him to death.
I mean, he died.
So I hadn't dared to look any closer. But now I'm doing it - and hoping that I will live through it. #Quote by Amy Hempel
Canada quotes by Tim Kreider
#106. I'm not issuing some naïve plea for civility or bipartisanship here, or pretending that the opposing sides in this fight are intellectually equal. We have irreconcilable visions of the kind of country we want this to be: some of us would just like to live in Canada with better weather; others want something more like Iran with Jesus. My cruelest hope for the Tea Party is that one of their candidates wins the nomination for the presidency and they implode of their hubristic stupidity. But at least when I hear about them now, instead of reflexively picturing some braying ignoramus like Michele Bachmann, I try to remember that Matt [a friend of the Author's, ed] is out in that crowd somewhere, too. God agreed to spare Sodom if ten good men could be found within its walls (Abraham had to haggle him down from fifty). He ended up napalming those perverts anyway but the basic principle of sparing the sinner for the sake of the righteous, or the shithead for the sake of the basically okay, remains sound. #Quote by Tim Kreider
Canada quotes by Jean Chretien
#107. If military action in Iraq is launched without a new U.N. resolution, Canada will not participate. #Quote by Jean Chretien
Canada quotes by John R. Lott Jr.
#108. Criminals are motivated by self-preservation, and handguns can therefore be a deterrent. The potential defensive nature of guns is further evidenced by the different rates of so-called "hot burglaries," where a resident is at home when a criminal strikes.16 In Canada and Britain, both with tough gun-control laws, almost half of all burglaries are "hot burglaries." In contrast, the United States, with fewer restrictions, has a "hot burglary" rate of only 13 percent. #Quote by John R. Lott Jr.
Canada quotes by J. Philippe Rushton
#109. The mean pattern of educational and economic achievement within multi-racial countries such as Canada and the United States has increasingly been found to prove valid internationally. #Quote by J. Philippe Rushton
Canada quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#110. In a country that never wins anything: in Canada, if one of our athletes so much as makes the final in a World Championship, we declare a national holiday. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Canada quotes by Tucker Carlson
#111. Every single comedian in Canada is now living in the United States. #Quote by Tucker Carlson
Canada quotes by T.R. Reid
#112. When I was traveling the world on my quest, I asked the health ministry of each country how many citizens had declared bankruptcy in the past year because of medical bills. Generally, the officials responded to this question with a look of astonishment, as if I had asked how many flying saucers from Mars landed in the ministry's parking lot last week. How many people go bankrupt because of medical bills? In Britain, zero. In France, zero. In Japan, Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, Switzerland: zero. In the United States, according to a joint study by Harvard Law School and Harvard Medical School, the annual figure is around 700,000.3 QUALITY #Quote by T.R. Reid
Canada quotes by Brian Mulroney
#113. I can see now a vision emerging how Canada is going to profit in the future from our Arctic resources without destroying the environment on which it is all based. #Quote by Brian Mulroney
Canada quotes by Leonard Cohen
#114. Some say that no one ever leaves Montreal, for that city, like Canada itself, is designed to preserve the past, a past that happened somewhere else. #Quote by Leonard Cohen
Canada quotes by M.G. Vassanji
#115. To define [Canada] or its literature seems like putting a finger on Zeno's arrow: no sooner do you think you have done it than it has moved on. #Quote by M.G. Vassanji

Canada quotes by Adam Rex
#117. Can I see some ID?"
"WE DON'T HAVE ID," said Jay, loudly. "'CAUSE WE'RE CANADIAN. WE DON'T USE ID ... THERE. AND THAT'S WHY WE LOOK SO YOUNG. 'CAUSE WE'RE CANADIAN."
Doug stiffened. Jay sounded crazy. Doug tried looking extra sane to even things out. #Quote by Adam Rex

#118. It's always a thrill to wear the flag and ride for Canada in any competition, but especially the Olympics. #Quote by Ian Millar
Canada quotes by Jon Krakauer
#119. When Debbie was fourteen, she felt "impressed by the Lord" to marry Ray Blackmore, the community leader. Debbie asked her father to share her divine impression with Prophet LeRoy Johnson, who would periodically travel to Bountiful from Short Creek to perform various religious duties. Because Debbie was lithe and beautiful, Uncle Roy approved of the match. A year later the prophet returned to Canada and married her to the ailing fifty-seven-year-old Blackmore. As his sixth wife, Debbie became a stepmother to Blackmore's thirty-one kids, most of whom were older than she was. And because he happened to be the father of Debbie's own stepmother, Mem, she unwittingly became a stepmother to her stepmother, and thus a step grandmother to herself. #Quote by Jon Krakauer
Canada quotes by Barbara Mikulski

Canada quotes by Noreena Hertz

Canada quotes by Mark M. Bello

Hundreds of millions of dollars have been paid to silence victims of this institutional embarrassment. #Quote by Mark M. Bello

Canada quotes by Andrew Nikiforuk
#125. Bitumen, the new national staple, is redefining the character and destiny of Canada. Rapid development of the tar sands has created a foreign policy that favours the export of bitumen to the United States and lax immigration standards that champion the import of global bitumen workers. #Quote by Andrew Nikiforuk
Canada quotes by Stephen Harper
#126. Too often in the past, our Armed Forces have returned to Canada from their trials with little fanfare. Not so today. Canadians across the country came out in force, united in appreciation, to honour the bravery, heroism, strength and sacrifice of those who fought for freedom and security in Afghanistan. #Quote by Stephen Harper
Canada quotes by NoViolet Bulawayo
#127. To play the country-game, we have to choose a country. Everybody wants to be the USA and Britain and Canada and Australia and Switzerland and them. Nobody wants to be rags of countries like Congo, like Somalia, like Iraq, like Sudan, like Haiti, and not even this one we live in - who wants to be a terrible place of hunger and things falling apart? #Quote by NoViolet Bulawayo
Canada quotes by David Sutcliffe
#128. It's a beautiful drive across the United States. It's so interesting. I'm a proud Canadian, and there are so many beautiful parts of Canada, but the United States also has incredible diversity in its landscape. #Quote by David Sutcliffe
Canada quotes by Wyndham Lewis
#129. (Canada) - the most parochial nationette on earth ... I have been living in this sanctimonious icebox ... painting portraits of the opulent Methodists of Toronto. Methodism and money in this city have produced a sort of hell of dullness. #Quote by Wyndham Lewis
Canada quotes by Scott Thompson
#130. Well I think comedy everywhere has lost a bit of its bite. In Canada, I can't argue with the quality, but it feels like it's gotten a little safe. #Quote by Scott Thompson
Canada quotes by Alexander Mackenzie
#131. I am sure that in Canada the people appreciate this principle, and the general intelligence which prevails over that country is such that I am sure there is no danger of a reactionary policy ever finding a response in the hearts of any considerable number of our people. #Quote by Alexander Mackenzie
Canada quotes by Trevor McNevan
#132. I think we have a little added appreciation for the Canadian fans, maybe because there's a lot of Canadians that want a Canadian band that seems to tour a lot more in the U.S. that are like, "Whatever. You guys don't care about us. You just turned your back." Our fans, the people that we hang with in Canada when we play, seem to be super-supportive still. We have a lot of love for that. #Quote by Trevor McNevan
Canada quotes by Paul Prudhomme
#133. Cajun is country food by farmers and fisherman that arrived in Louisiana from Acadiana, Canada. #Quote by Paul Prudhomme

Canada quotes by Brian D'Ambrosio
#135. The lonely, wistful revisionism of memories is as gratingly repetitive as snow and ice in Canada. I avoid them both at all costs - memories and Canada. #Quote by Brian D'Ambrosio
Canada quotes by Ann Veneman
#136. The demand for beef in Canada remains strong because I think people in America, in North America, know that we have a very strong food safety system and that our food is safe to eat. #Quote by Ann Veneman
Canada quotes by Wayne Grady
#137. America is essentially an entrepreneurial culture: the sizzle is the steak, because, after all, if you buy the sizzle, the steak comes with it. Canada's, in contrast, is a primary-producing culture: we'll buy the steak and hope to get a little sizzle with it. But we know we can't eat sizzle. #Quote by Wayne Grady

Canada quotes by Michael Nyqvist
#139. Canada was for me very much Sweden, you know? Very much open people, that they read books, they go see films. I felt at home in Canada. And also, you speak French. #Quote by Michael Nyqvist
Canada quotes by Michael Audain
#140. The Arts Council of England, in a 1998 report on 11 countries, found that Germany spent $85 per capita on the arts. The United States spent a shocking $6. And Canada, in its stubborn balance, spent $46 ... It's the Canadian way to be halfway between the Old and New worlds. #Quote by Michael Audain
Canada quotes by John Jerome
#141. [A]s my breath begins to quiet in the silent woods, I pick up a squeaking, creaking sound, growing steadily louder, that makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck. I snap my head up and overhead, oh my God, here comes three hundred, five hundred, a thousand Canada geese, maybe fifteen hundred, stretching across the sky in a succession of vees. Largest flight I've ever seen. Underlit from reflection off the snow, a skyful of silver arrowheads, bound due north for the summer to come. A skyful of physiology, riding the physics of the air toward the pole. Riches, riches, everywhere, just for the paying of attention. #Quote by John Jerome
Canada quotes by John Baird
#142. Canada does not just 'go along' in order to 'get along.' We will 'go along,' only if we 'go' in a direction that advances Canada's values: freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law. #Quote by John Baird
Canada quotes by Sarah Palin
#143. Canada needs to dismantle its public health-care system and allow private enterprise to get involved and turn a profit. #Quote by Sarah Palin
Canada quotes by Martin Rees

Canada quotes by Stephen Harper
#145. Withdraw from the Canada Pension Plan ... Collect our own revenue from personal income tax ... Resume provincial responsibility for health-care policy. If Ottawa objects to provincial policy, fight in the courts ... [E]ach province should raise its own revenue for health ... It is imperative to take the initiative, to build firewalls around Alberta ... #Quote by Stephen Harper
Canada quotes by Joseph Boyden
#146. America seems to celebrate its more violent past, but Canada doesn't like to recognize those things. The willingness to accept the existence of violence separates our two countries. #Quote by Joseph Boyden
Canada quotes by Mary-Louise Parker
#147. Toronto I've worked in so many times so you kind of just know every store, every hotel, every - it's really close to New York so it's awesome for my children so if I have to go home for two days it doesn't take very much time. Except for Air Canada. Air Canada is the worst part. #Quote by Mary-Louise Parker

Canada quotes by Simon Armitage
#149. They said we probably wouldn't be let back into Canada, suggesting we'd just have to live forever on the bridge, cadging fruit and peanuts from passing motorists and drinking the spray thrown up by the mighty falls, but the guard at the north end just smiled and waved us through. #Quote by Simon Armitage

Canada quotes by Paul Martin
#151. As a people, we know what we can do, we know how to do it, and we just want to get on with it. How? By ensuring that Canada's place in the world is one of influence and pride. #Quote by Paul Martin
Canada quotes by Malcolm Gladwell
#152. Suppose you were to total up all the wars over the past two hundred years that occurred between very large and very small countries. Let's say that one side has to be at least ten times larger in population and armed might than the other. How often do you think the bigger side wins? Most of us, I think, would put that number at close to 100 percent. A tenfold difference is a lot. But the actual answer may surprise you. When the political scientist Ivan Arreguin-Toft did the calculation a few years ago, what he came up with was 71.5 percent. Just under a third of the time, the weaker country wins.
Arreguin-Toft then asked the question slightly differently. What happens in wars between the strong and the weak when the weak side […] refuses to fight the way the bigger side wants to fight, using unconventional or guerilla tactics? The answer: in those cases, the weaker party's winning percentage climbs from 28.5 percent to 63.6 percent. To put that in perspective, the United Stats' population is ten times the size of Canada's. If the two countries went to war and Canada chose to fight unconventionally, history would suggest that you ought to put your money on Canada. #Quote by Malcolm Gladwell
Canada quotes by Lynsay Sands
#153. There was another pause and then Bastien clucked and snapped, "Dammit, Thomas! Inez is one of my best employees."
He pulled the phone away from his ear to peer at it with disbelief, and then slapped it back to his head. "What the hell has that got to do with anything?"
"Well, if you had to find your lifemate, couldn't it have been someone else's employee. I'm going to lose her now. She'll want to be with you and come to Canada and

Canada quotes by Conan O'Brien
#159. People all over the world now are following our election. And according to a new international poll that just came out, I think this came out a few hours ago, this is true, people in Canada want Barack Obama to be the next U.S. president. That's what they're saying. In Canada, yeah. That makes sense, because Obama has the support of Canada's anti-war voters, as well as Canada's black guy. He is very excited. #Quote by Conan O'Brien

Canada quotes by Joy Williams
#162. I think I had the same notion most people have, which is it's simply a town that percolates around country music. Though country-music history is deep and richly steeped throughout the city, this is a place that's been expanding musically and culturally ... People coming from Europe and Canada-there are all kinds of different cultures and different music being represented here. It continues to blossom. #Quote by Joy Williams
Canada quotes by Francesca Zappia
#163. I grab the gifts I've been meaning to send Max and Emmy - a copy each of the newest Monstrous Sea graphic novel compilation and a pack of Twizzlers for Max and Starburst for Emmy - and pack them up. Max lives in Canada; Emmy goes to school in California. Max's shipping is usually a killer, but whatever, I can write it off as business expense. #Quote by Francesca Zappia

Canada quotes by John Hoeven
#165. The irony of environmental opposition to the Keystone XL project is that stopping the pipeline to the U.S. will not stop production in the oil sands of Canada. Instead of coming to the United States, the oil will still be produced and shipped by rail or a pipeline similar to the Keystone XL to Canada's Pacific Coast. #Quote by John Hoeven
Canada quotes by Fareed Zakaria
#166. We have not noticed how fast the rest has risen. Most of the industrialized world--and a good part of the nonindustrialized world as well--has better cell phone service than the United States. Broadband is faster and cheaper across the industrial world, from Canada to France to Japan, and the United States now stands sixteenth in the world in broadband penetration per capita. Americans are constantly told by their politicians that the only thing we have to learn from other countries' health care systems is to be thankful for ours. Most Americans ignore the fact that a third of the country's public schools are totally dysfunctional (because their children go to the other two-thirds). The American litigation system is now routinely referred to as a huge cost to doing business, but no one dares propose any reform of it. Our mortgage deduction for housing costs a staggering $80 billion a year, and we are told it is crucial to support home ownership, except that Margaret Thatcher eliminated it in Britain, and yet that country has the same rate of home ownership as the United States. We rarely look around and notice other options and alternatives, convinced that "we're number one. #Quote by Fareed Zakaria

Canada quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#171. We shall divert through our own Country a branch of commerce which the European States have thought worthy of the most important struggles and sacrifices, and in the event of peace on terms which have been contemplated by some powers we shall form to the American union a barrier against the dangerous extension of the British Province of Canada and add to the Empire of liberty an extensive and fertile Country thereby converting dangerous Enemies into valuable friends. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Canada quotes by Alanis Morissette
#172. Canada has a passive-aggressive culture, with a lot of sarcasm and righteousness. That went with my weird messianic complex. The ego is a fascinating monster. I was taught from a young age that I had to serve, so that turned into me thinking I had to save the planet. #Quote by Alanis Morissette
Canada quotes by Kate Inglis
#173. Nova Scotia is a box bass and a fiddle and German sourdough and scotch eggs. And the air, all heavy and bracing and wet. When you're driving, you wave to the old guy walking along the side of the road in the plaid flannel shirt and he waves back, because it's just what you do. This is an extraordinarily hospitable and musical place. You've got to haul wood in the winter and batten down hatches during hurricanes, and there are bagpipes and banjos and weathered old barns and whales offshore and abandoned fishing boats sleeping on the beach. #Quote by Kate Inglis
Canada quotes by Robertson Davies
#174. Canada was settled, in the main, by people with a lower middle-class outlook, and a respect, rather than an affectionate familiarity, for the things of the mind. #Quote by Robertson Davies
Canada quotes by Gail Bowen
#175. Victoria Park looks like every other inner-city park in every other city in Canada; a large and handsome memorial to the war dead surrounded by a square block of hard-tracked grass and benches where people can sit and look at statues of politicians or at flower beds planted with petunias and marigolds, the cheap and the hardy, downtown survivors. #Quote by Gail Bowen

Canada quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#179. We are told: "We should not protect those who are unable to defend themselves with their own human resources." But against the overwhelming forces of totalitarianism, when all of this power is thrown against a country - no country can defend itself with its own resources. For instance, Japan doesn't have a standing army.

We are told: "We should not protect those who do not have a full democracy." This is the most remarkable argument of all. This is the leitmotif I hear in your newspapers and in the speeches of some of your political leaders. Who in the world, when on the front line of defense against totalitarianism, has ever been able to sustain a full democracy? You, the united democracies of the world, were not able to sustain it. America, England, France, Canada, Australia together did not sustain it. At the first threat of Hitlerism, you stretched out your hands to Stalin. You call that sustaining democracy? Hardly. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Canada quotes by Mark Satin
#180. Draft resisters have had and should continue to have only normal difficulties immigrating [to Canada]. Probably any young American can get in if he is really determined, though all will need adequate information ... The toughest problem a draft resister faces is not how to immigrate but whether he really wants to. And only you can answer that. For yourself. That's what Nuremberg was all about. #Quote by Mark Satin
Canada quotes by Roberta Pearce
#181. When just a kid, moved back to Canada and looking for a taste of England, I'd picked up a book of my Gram's, a dog-eared romance from the 'sixties about English hospital 'sisters' trying to get it on with the doctors, and thought it very shocking behaviour for nuns. #Quote by Roberta Pearce

#185. Tommy looked blank. "What's a flashlight?"
"You don't have flashlights?" Jessup said. "Jeeze! A cylinder, like, with batteries inside it, and a light bulb behind glass at one end
"
Tommy's blue eyes glinted dangerously. "We have a thing in Scotland that's a cylinder too. Very thin, made of wood, with graphite in the center. We call it a pencil."
Jessup hooted. "You think we don't have pencils?"
"You think we don't have flashlights?" Tommy snapped. "That's just American dialect. In the English language they're called torches."
Emily said mildly, "Actually we're Canadians. #Quote by Susan Cooper

Canada quotes by Chuck Palahniuk
#189. Old-time ranchers planted cheatgrass because it would green up fast in the spring and provide early forage for grazing cattle," Oyster says, nodding his head at the world outside.

This first patch of cheatgrass was in southern British Columbia, Canada, in 1889. But fire spreads it. Every year, it dries to gunpowder, and now land that used to burn every ten years, it burns every year. And the cheatgrass recovers fast. Cheatgrass loves fire. But the native plants, the sagebrush and desert phlox, they don't. And every year it burns, there's more cheatgrass and less anything else. And the deer and antelope that depended on those other plants are gone now. So are the rabbits. So are the hawks and owls that ate the rabbits. The mice starve, so the snakes that ate the mice starve.

Today, cheatgrass dominates the inland deserts from Canada to Nevada, covering an area over twice the size of the state of Nebraska and spreading by thousands of acres per year.

The big irony is, even cattle hate cheatgrass, Oyster says. So the cows, they eat the rare native bunch grasses. What's left of them...

"When you think about it from a native plant perspective," Oyster says, "Johnny Appleseed was a fucking biological terrorist."

Johnny Appleseed, he says, might as well be handing out smallpox. #Quote by Chuck Palahniuk
Canada quotes by Nicki Edwards
#190. Is that mistletoe?"
Jim nodded.
"Cool. We don't have that in Australia."
"So you've never kissed beneath the mistletoe."
She shook her head.
"When in Canada..." His eyes searched hers.
"When in Canada," she repeated softly.
Jim pulled her close, parted his lips slightly, gazed into her eyes and she forgot to breathe. Everything around them fell away. She forgot the people behind her, forgot the crowd in the church, forgot Scumbag Steve. Forgot that it was Christmas and she was in a foreign country about to kiss a stranger. None of it mattered. She gazed into Jim's eyes, losing herself in the soft gray depths.
"May this kiss be the beginning of your Christmas dreams come true," he whispered as he gently pressed his lips into hers. #Quote by Nicki Edwards

#192. For two years now, my office has had the honour and the privilege of sponsoring seminars on the functioning of government in this country for Eastern Europeans. These seminars and exchanges have brought together representatives from such nations as Bulgaria, Hungary, the Czech and Slovak Republic, Roumania, Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and the Ukraine, all of them anxious to learn what makes a society as diverse as Canada work and how our institutions make it governable. #Quote by John Allen Fraser
