Religion is less of an issue in Canada.  We have a multicultural government initiative that promotes toleration towards other faiths and it doesn't come across as excluding atheists.  In British Columbia, one out of every three people claim to have no religion.  However, the rest of Canada has a much higher count of religionists.  Even in the US the statistics vary enormously from state to state.  In Washington, one in every five say the are non-religious.

Dear Darwin,
I have a question for you.  I am thinking about moving to Canada.  What is the overall attitude towards Atheists in Canada?  Here in the US the majority, even the government itself, is openly hostile towards us.  Having Rev. Bush in office doesn't help matters much.
