Why Would Canadians Want to Visit Norway if they're not Respected for being from Canada and for their Canadian Nationality?
View of a Canada - USA international land border crossing between Canada and the USA (entering the USA from Canada) at the international border (officially known as the "International Boundary"). Canadians need a passport to enter the USA, just as Canadians need a passport to enter Norway. The present border originated with the Treaty of Paris in 1783, after the American Revolutionary War ended(earning the USA independence), in which Canadians remained loyal to Britain and the British Empire.
Why do so many Norwegian journalists locate Canadian cities, Canadian provinces, and Canadian universities in the USA or France? Canadian cities (whether in the French speaking or English speaking parts of Canada), like Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Ottawa (the Canadian capital) etc., are located in Canada, not in the USA or France.
There is a Norwegian Double Standard: Why do so many Norwegian journalists identify the Canadian nationality and citizenship of Canadian actors & musicians as American, or being from the USA? Just because a Canadian works or lives in the USA, it doesn't mean he or she is not a Canadian. For example, Canadian actor William Shatner lives and works in the USA, but he's Canadian. He grew up in the French part of Canada, speaks French and English, and is a Canadian citizen. Just because he lives in the USA doesn't make him an American. If a Norwegian lives in the Sweden, Canada, or USA for a career or by choice, should the Canadian media report him or her as a Swede, a Canadian, or an American when they are in fact Norwegian? Norwegian Torill Kove has lived in Canada since 1982, and is a Canadian citizen, but is she still not a Norwegian? In the Norwegian media she is never reported or given any credit as a Canadian. Suzann Pettersen is Norwegian and lives in the USA, so does that mean it's correct for the Canadian media to start reporting or identifying her as an American now just because she lives in the USA? If the Norwegians can claim Knut Rockne in their media stories as Norwegian (after moving to the USA at five years of age); then why can't some Norwegian journalists give Canadians credit for their Canadian nationality when a Canadian is successful in the USA? Why is their Canadian nationality taken away from them so easily? Norwegian stories on Canadians Peter Jennings, Leonard Cohen, William Shatner, etc., are all good examples. Seems like a Norwegian double standard.
Why do so many Norwegian journalist apply American standards, American laws or American rules, as the Canadian standards?
Why is much of the Canadian content or aspect of a Canadian story or event, at times, removed from Canadian stories or changed to look American, or no reference made to Canadian events even taking place in Canada?
Why is coverage of Canadian (Canada is a G-8 nation with some clout in this world) news so rare in the Norwegian media? And why is Canadian news, when a tragic or terrible story (like a school shooting, or murder), played up in the Norwegian media as major "epidemic" problems in Canada, or lumped in with events in the USA, as to make it seem like it's a big "American" problem in Canada? When in fact, compared to the USA, these types of crime stories and criminal events in Canada are very rare compared to the USA and many European countries. Is Canada really so insignificant a country to Norwegians?
Are Norwegians no better at seeing Canada as part of the USA, in the same way Norwegians complain how the world sees them as part of Sweden?
