I'd like to start off by saying that no one hates the american people. Hating an individual goes against all western values and should not be confused with contempt for a country as a whole. So why does the world "hate" america. Your foreign policy.

During the cold war the US tried to absorb Canada into itself by taking control of its business and culture. This left canada with economic problems and an identity crisis. Nowadays we are your number one supplier of natural resources and you seem to be unaware of our country altogether. We, not the middle east, are your supplier of oil, lumber ect. We sell everything to you at low prices and are undergoing an expensive project to divert glacier water to the drier parts of usa. right now i live in the most polluted part of canada, none of the pollution is derived of canadian industry it is from factories in michigan. Our leaders have been offering solutions to you for a long time but you always decline. it seems that your government is exploiting our country and isnt even aware of it.
