Gun control is regulated. Basically if you want to own a hunting rifle you have to take a non-restricted gun course. Get a licence and you are done. The same is true for handguns but it is a restricted gun course. There are gun storage laws. You can’t just get a gun and keep it next to your bed, it has to be locked and unloaded at all times. Transporting of restricted firearms can only be between your home and the firing range. There is more to it, but that is the basics.
I love Canada because I live in a major city, take a train into work that is run off of wind power, and on a clear day I can see the Rockies from my house.
I don’t have to lock my doors during the day. In fact one summer I lived in a brutally hot small town and the house has no air conditioning. My roommate and I left the windows (and sometimes the door) open all day. Even when we were not home.
I had a baby this summer. For the delivery I had a private room (standard practice) with my own bathroom and shower. I also splurged and got a private room for recovery and the grand total was $40. I had to pay for the recovery room. My daughter was born with hip dysplasia and had to wear a harness. She had x-rays done of her hips before she was even alive for one whole day, and two sets of ultrasounds before we could stop puttering in the harness. Grand total $0.
I have driven across the country a few times, and every single day of the drive I was amazed by how beautiful and diverse this place is.
