Yes, because Canada was still a British puppet government at the time. America did the same thing, and of its own free will.

Close. In World War One we had to declare war on anyone Britain declared war on, like the Boer War for example. However, Canada was still a democracy and we elected our own Prime Ministers. These Prime Ministers were similiar to American presidents, however Britain was in charge of our foreign affairs, and our Supreme Court was in Britain too.

The majority of Canada was in favour of the war, the minority being made up of hardcore feminists and Quebecois extremists.

As a reward for our service, Canada was given full independence. When Britain declared war on Germany in WWII, the Canadian Parliament in a landslide voted to declare war on Germany as well.

Norway, Iceland, Denmark (Greenland), the United States (Alaska), and Russia can get much colder than Finland. Canada is just freezing and has Silverdream. That's enough to make me never want to visit.

I was wondering when exactly Canada became an independant state. Not exactly something you learn in US history. Then again, I doubt many Canadians know much about the Mexican-American war.

Pop Quiz: What was the one time American and Canadian forces engaged in direct conflict?

The difference between students in America, Canada and the rest of the world is that American kids learn history and forget about it right away. Canadians and everyone else learn history and remember it. The only real exception is the second World War because we (Americans) did well and for some reason that gives us a right to be cocky even though the war ended a very long time ago.

Still, Canada has Silverdream and that means it is far from perfect.

Canada should filter to America.

And another thing...

Screw you Zupponn! Bears are just warming up! Chicago forever! On a more serious note, my great grandfather played for the Cardinals (before they were the Bears) back in the 30's. I'll see if I can upload a picture.

Ahh, the Finnish military. In most of it's elements, it greatly resembles the Russian/Soviet one (albeit with most of the doctrine scaled away from tanks jets etc, and more toward artillery, SAMs, and so on due to being a smaller country.

For example, the Valmet, Finland's rifle of choice:

Here it is presented in standard Scandinavian format, the IKEA RÅFLE :

And finally, the Valmet's greatest feature, when you are in the middle of the woods and you need both hands free, you simply insert it into a tree!

Of course, Finland also fielded the L-35/36 anti-tank guns. These were literally medium machine guns with their automatic capability removed, and used (without sucess) to penetrate the armor of tanks. The best part, though, is that they had a tendency to freeze in the winter cold, rendering them unusable util spring. In FINLAND

Finland also fielded the white death, a cybernetic hunter killer that utilized a machine gun and hunting rifle to kill hundreds of communists.

After 1907, Canada became a dominion. We are completly indepedant since the end of the 40's, around 1948 I think.

No, he was just an angry dude that wouldn't die. He was never "fielded" by anyone other than himself.
