Mark Weiser, we Canadians are far more aware of Africa, and indeed all areas beyond North America, unlike most insular and arrogant "me only" Americans. Your remark sounds depressingly and insultingly "Trumpian"

Mark Weiser - really? You think Canadians, in general lack geographical knowledge? Hell, we're a country populated by people of the world you idiot.
