Can o' topia

Every morning the top headlines from the New York Times are sent to me via e-mail. It's free, it's easy, and it keeps me abreast of the goings on in the world. In today's e-mail the op-ed piece by David Frum has this lead in sentence:
"Canada's Liberal Party's embezzlement scandal is threatening the utopian vision Americans have of their neighbor."

Perhaps it's just me, but I don't recall ever having a utopian vision of Canada (nor do I know any Americans who do), unless of course by Utopia Mr. Frum means bland and slightly French.
