I am pro Canadian, because Canada isn't Mexico. Ironically I am pro-Mexican as well ;-) Ever hear of the Ugly American? Americans are exceptional everywhere they go ... so of course as you say, a Canadian isn't exceptional, so they won't feel exceptional outside their country either ;-) In the cartoon, Hitalia, the American character is a brother to the Brit, but fight like brothers, together and against each other. But the American is a bombastic asshole that the other characters barely tolerate. I think that is a fair characterization.
