Of course you are 100% correct in saying that it is infinitely more difficult to make the social, cultural and even language transition from Canada to Russia than it is from English-speaking Canada to French-speaking Canada. Canada is Canada. The problem is that you're wasting your time trying to convince people who are more interested in keeping an argument going than they are in honestly discussing the matter.
