Where's Canda? Is it my home and native land?

I loved this quote today from Washington Post. The debate centers on farmers who are opposed to selling an easement to a Candian oil company so they can move oil-rich sand from Alberta to refineries in the Gulf.

"It should be seen as progress to bring some crude oil down here to central Illinois," said John Gramm, 76, of Gridley. "It's good for business and labor, and it makes us less dependent on foreign oil."

Funny, I thought Canada was a foreign country.
