Canada ranks 37th in the world population statistics
with Iraq close at number 38.
Our land mass however is second only to Russia and we have the largest area of fresh water in the world.
Iraq's land mass is way down at 59th in the world.
We are in a unique position on the Earth. Canada has a wealth of unpopulated or sparsely populated areas, plenty of water and good social services policies nationally, provincially and locally.
