(English)

O Canada! Our home and native land!

True patriot love in all thy sons command.

With glowing hearts we see thee rise,

The True North strong and free!

From far and wide, O Canada,

We stand on guard for thee.

God keep our land glorious and free!

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.

(French)

O Canada! Terre de nos aïeux,

Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux.

Car ton bras sait porter l'épée,

Il sait porter la croix.

Ton histoire est une épopée,

Des plus brillants exploits.

Et ta valeur, de foi trempée,

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.

I hope this answers your question

The US side is dirty and industrial. The Canadian side is clean, and the view is much better, that's why all the tourists come here.

I've been to both sides and I prefer the Canadian side. You can, however, check out both sides of the falls . . . it's easy to do. Of course, if I encountered some idiot following me around on the Ontario side singing O Canada, it might cause me to seek-out a more sane environment (lol!).

I would definitely suggest the Canadian side-it's where all the excitement is! It is getting a little more built-up that I would like, but is still a place that I would recommend visiting. The US side is very boring and most of the hotels are older and not worth the money.

By far.... the Canadian side is much cleaner, there's more to do and more to see.

all of these posts do not accurately depict the American side of Niagara Falls. The American side $uck$!! There you go....

Stop briefly to take in the Cave of the Winds. It is intense!! Then flee for Canada.....
