Canada is known for many things; Hockey, Poutine, saying 'sorry' for everything, and most importantly, their love for Idaho. That’s right, Canadians and Idahoans are basically best friends! According to this neat little video, Canada and Idaho support each other in many ways that benefit our economy. Thousands of jobs and many Canadian-owned businesses can be attributed to this, and we’re not just talking about the Elsinore Brewery, eh.

According to Learning About Canada, Idaho exported $936 Million of goods last year, and it wasn’t potatoes. $296 Million of metal and minerals were sent to the Great White North, making it the top export last year.

This sounds like a great trade partnership for Idaho. Since they benefit our economy so much, I’m willing to forgive Canada for atrocities such as Bryan Adams, Alanis Morissette, and Justin Bieber.

And now, a message from the Canadian Department of Tourism. Sorry!
