Canada's Mark Carney has been appointed as the Bank of England governor in a surprise snatch from across the Atlantic.

Huff Post UK's Canadian cousins were unhappy with the surprise appointment, writing that Britain had "stolen" the head of the Bank of Canada to lead the British institution.

Business editor Daniel Tencer described Carney as the "superstar of the financial world, credited with helping Canada to weather the banking and economic crises of recent years better than nearly any other developed country."

So while Britain is plundering the country's natural resources, Huff Post UK has come up with 10 other things we'd like to swipe from Canada.

    This sweet amber liquid makes pretty much any dish better. Especially on streaky bacon. Mmmmm. Sorry Canada, we're taking it.

    Strong powerful rugged wood cutters can come chop up our forests anytime.
