But aside from that, you're the one who made a phenomenally generalized statement. If you want to say Japan/S.Korea/Taiwan (and two city-states)
just say it
. You say "Canada lags behind the States, which itself lags behind Europe and Asia"... a statement that is patently, 100% false.
I'm totally OK if you don't want to compare a country like Canada to an entire continent,
just don't say that you're going to do exactly that in the first place
It's like saying "
North Americans are good at speaking French
". Well, no. They absolutely are not. Only a tiny percentage of them are. Sure, I'll give you the fact that the people who
speak French speak it very well, but if you meant to say "Canadian East Coasters" are good at speaking french, why'd you drag the 95% of North Americans who don't know a lick of french into the conversation?
Oh Bonk. Will we ever get along?
