    "Why is our response different? It may be a case of identity. Americans celebrate independence, individualism, personal liberty. Many distrust government, resent politicians, court conspiracy and dismiss science. This wasn’t always so – the New Deal and the Great Society expanded the state – but it is now.

    "Canadians accept big government, which is how we built the social welfare state. Two-thirds of us voted for progressives last year. We defer to authority.

    Cohen: Why Canada's response to COVID-19 is so different from that of the U.S.

    US is the new leader with 17,000+ new cases yesterday it's time the game plan changes. Forget about the politics (they'll be there when this is over) work together to get rid of this thing.

    EDIT: please do not praise my post, popularity, or "us" and "them" mentality will not slow this down. Let's encourage our American friends in this time of struggle.

    I don’t see how Cohen’s assertions are valid.

    well his mistake is...up here in Canada you still see a lot of idiots, we had our own spring breakers doing stupid things too, to the point where trudeu and the police were talking about fines and charges for those breaking social distancing.

    Sadly, true. I agree with the article, as an American, which is one reason I was thinking we would fare worse than other countries in numbers when this started hitting.
