Canada Kicks Ass
I'm new so I'm going to rant

In the list about why Canada is so great one reason was
"We have the world's tallest self-supported structure (CN Tower, Toronto)"
It's the tallest building in the world. Why do we have to take away from it by not stating that fact? If you go to the CN Tower it says it's the tallest "building", and if you look it up in the guiness book of world records it says it's the tallest building in the world. So why is it that everyone else says "free standing structure"? I dont get it. It's a building, it was built, and it's the tallest. It's not difficult to come to the conclusion that it must be the tallest building.
Also, how come whenever I read anything by NASA they call the Canadarm the "robotic" arm. It's not called the robotic arm, it's called the Canadarm! An arm built by Canada.

Hey Gonzo ... There is also Yonge street the longest street in the world but yet its also a highway

We also have the longest skating rink (the Rideau Canal in Ottawa), the largest mall (west Edmonton mall) and an assortment of large and unusual things on the side of our highways.
