New Zealand is good. We are not.

Canada is a program on the rise. Both the men's and women's junior teams have played quite well as of late and the effects of the rise of the profile of basketball in Canada in the last 20 years is now starting to be seen.

It's also funny you mention that they don't care about anything not on ice. I played an event for the RCA yesterday and found out that Canada won 23 Olympic medals in rowing from 1904 to 1988. Since the RCA started making a real push for sponsorship and funding, we've won 25 since 1992.
