Do Canadians Like North America As A Continent?

I am very happy that I get to share the same continent as Canadians.
I think as one landmass, the state of Canada, US, Mexico, and the Carribbean, has a lot of good in it.
The peace of this continent is in large part to the diplomatic peaceful culture of Canada, which also provides precious resources and raw materials from its land and preserves native culture very well in its North.
Alberta oil enables the population of North America to consume transportation fuel that is not as heavily dependent on Saudi Arabia, and the resources of North America from the tropics and Southeastern US enable us to enjoy great orange juice.
And Mexico is the most unique country in terms of cultural variety of groups of IndoEuropeans, local cultural groups, and thousands of regional cultures and different cuisines.
In common, this whole region is home to people who wanted some form of freedom, opportunity, open space, democracy, peaceful living…..and independence from the Dominion of European rulers…..and in slightly different ways….
We have prairies, mountains, great cities like Toronto, New York, Mexico City.
great bread basket from Manitoba/Saskatchewan down to Nebraska,
Maritimes stretching from the banks of Newfoundland to the shores of the Carolinas…..
and a beautiful Pacific coastline alllll the way down to the southern tip of Mexico 2 BC’s, British Columbia and Baja California…..
Isn’t this whole continent something fascinating on the sphere of Earth to all Canadians, Americans, and Mexicans?

    I’m glad you’re happy to be from NA but honestly, I see myself more as a Cdn than a North American. I have met very nice Americans and Mexicans but I don’t want further integration btn our three countries. I believe only now are we Cdns figuring out our identity and developing our own culture and I don’t want to give that up. I actually wish the opposite of you, I want Canada to further focus on our own country and culture so we can develop more of it. When I’m speaking of ‘culture,’ I’m talking of the 80’s generation of Canadian kids who grew up watching Hinterland’s Who’s Who, Polka dot door, Seeing Things, Today’s Special etc. When I speak to people my age, we all have memories of those shows and regardless where we’re from we can all relate to those shows.
