John F. Kennedy once said that what unites Americans and Canadians is far greater than what divides us. Try telling that to the writers behind the animated television series "South Park." In one episode, Canada is portrayed as a mysterious land similar to Oz. The Academy Award-nominated song from "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut," "Blame Canada" features the line, "They're not even a real country anyway." In this hour of To the Best of Our Knowledge, we'll take a look at our neighbor to the north, Canada.
