Lovely, and I was fascinated by the comparisons. Well done.
You chose a great idea for comparison and described the mirror images splendidly.

You paint a detail-rich portrait of Canada, and your words flow almost poetically. A couple of my favorite phrases: "no wearying, wary hostility" - what a wonderful description! and how true. "civilized scion of Europe," I like how this rolls of the tongue. You may be a bit weak on topic,(?) having essentially written a comparison of 2 countries. Excellent writing!

I love your idea of twins alike yet different, each country with its own personality. I agree, it is poetic in nature.
