This op-ed passionately addresses the “American difference” that may enable Canadian government accommodation of US government demand for FATCA reporting. Missing elements: accounting for the fundamental anti-Americanism that makes such discrimination possible; assessment of Canada’s unique geographic and cultural and economic proximity to the United States; recognition of statist tendencies manifested in Canada’s style of governance.
