How would you describe the relationship between Canada and our closest ally and neighbour? Child/Mother? Sibling rivalry? Victim/Bully? Worshippers/Idol? Friends? Enemies? Frenemies?

Some would argue that in everything but name we are effectively the 51st State with a puppet Prime Minister whose strings are pulled by a puppet master President, while others would counter by saying that our countries share a very close and mutually respected bond that allows for tree trade, cross border shopping, and a wealth of partnerships.
