One of the best moments of television I’ve seen in awhile is
the rant fictional news anchor Will McAvoy gives early in the pilot episode of
Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom, when he’s asked by a student to discuss why he
thinks the United States is the greatest country in the world. He proceeds to
rhyme off a litany of statistics to outline why feels it no longer is.
I thought it would be interesting to see how Canada fared in the categories outlined by McAvoy.
