According to the CBC:

"Spain has the highest organ donation rate in the world — 36 donors per million people in 2014.
Today, Canada’s rate is half that — 18 donors per million people — and in the lower third of
developed countries.  Even the United States is doing better that us, at 26 donors per million."

So ya, it is a much higher *percentage* in the US, but in real numbers it's only 8 more people in a
million. You're hardly rocking the world with your overwhelming courage and altruism. That's why the
wait times aren't that much different, if at all. Both countries suck.

A lot of it is not the people, but just the outdated laws themselves. For example, some of the more
progressive jurisdictions in Canada have a rebuttable presumption that the deceased is an organ
donor, while other less progressive jurisdictions look for a pre-death consent. It makes a huge
difference. Canadians overwhelmingly support organ donation; they're  just too lazy to fill out the
cards. It must be all the weed.
