I don't believe your 90% figure (of exports from the U.S. ending up in Canada), however, I do believe a majority of Canada's exports are U.S. bound. And I also believe that we are each other's largest trading partners.

As for Canadian made TV programs, I believe I've read somewhere that 2/3 of television viewing in French Canada is locally produced (I'm not commenting of it's quality here ...), whereas some 90% of English Canadian television viewing is of American produced programs.

Once you get beyond the News and Hockey Night in Canada, what else is there?

Thus a much stronger identity exists in French Canada (or Québec) than in English Canada.

As for W, it took him almost 4 years.

Here's a quote, apparently from the NY Times:

OTTAWA, Nov. 30 - President Bush on Tuesday thanked Canadians who waved a welcome to him "with all five fingers" on his first official visit to their country, but he also appeared defensive at a time when he was expected to reach out and try to repair the rift over the war in Iraq.
