Australia: Canada is Safe, eh?

Australians Advised to "exercise caution" When Traveling to Canada


For some reason, the Australian government's "Smart Traveller" website is cautioning their public that Canada isn't exactly a safe travel destination:

"Bush and forest fires can occur any time in Canada. You should consult local news reports and authorities before visiting forested areas and follow the advice of local authorities."

"We advise you to exercise caution and monitor developments that might affect your safety in Canada because of the risk of terrorist attack."

"Pay close attention to your personal security and monitor the media for information about possible new safety or security risks."

"All oceanic regions of the world can experience tsunamis, but in the Indian and Pacific Oceans, there is a more frequent occurrence of large, destructive tsunamis because of the many large earthquakes along major tectonic plate boundaries and ocean trenches."

Fellow Canadians: Yikes! This is sounding pretty dangerous! Perhaps we should move?

Yahoo did a great write up on this website. The best part is the countries listed as safer than Canada:
China
Chile
Croatia
Czech Republic
Belarus
Romania
South Korea
Ireland
Norway
Japan
and Latvia. WTF??
