In a class about religion and secularity, a Canadian man, picking up a book on Locke, robustly proclaims: The American Constitution stole his ideas...

Same man, some time ago, recounting having watched one of the televised presidential-elections debate:

One candidate was saying he spoke to God at seven o'clock this morning. The other said his daughter had a meeting with God the day before yesterday...

No reaction from the group except for generally nodding and one or two snickers.

I'm increasingly becoming persuaded that Canadians suffer from a serious national identity angst problem.
