Am not sure I follow your point about moral matters. Let me put it this way,
though: we pay a higher cost for the moral high ground -- look at the reaction of
people like Cousin Bill to Chrétien's caution about going to war with Iraq. It's
a simple fact of geopolitics that the US has substantial economic control over
Canada, and that limits our "level ground" choices. It doesn't eliminate them,
just makes them more expensive.
