Absolutely in terms of summer games.

We should be dominating in winter sports as its much harder to put winter sport resources in place for non-cold climate countries.

We may not have year round sunshine to train in but a good portion of summer sports can be done in existing or cheaply built sporting complexes.

Canadians in general simply just dont care enough about sports other than hockey.

And when we dont do well theres a litany of excuses. Not enough population, dont spend enough money, bad weather blah blah blah.
