Received in an email. I thought it was an excellent piece of work, and might be of interest to others who haven't had occasion to see it...


Six minutes long.

Tom Brokaw explains the relationship between Canada and The United States,
in a pre-recorded short film that aired on NBC prior to the Opening
Ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver, British Columbia,
Canada on Feb. 14th, 2010.

Thanks for posting the video. It is a real eye opener! Living in Michigan, we mingle with Canadians on a daily basis. They are wonderful people. I'm very happy that we're such good neighbors.

nice video. thank you. i do remember the 1980 incident and how Canada stepped in followed by a lot of "Canada love" here. I remember asking my dad to explain it to me (I was probably around 8 years old or so) and I think he opened his mouth and babbled some hot air knowing that a kid had no easy way of checking the accuracy of his information
The video did a great job of explaining it to me finally after all these years. omg, the CIA.

i also had no idea we get so much oil from Canada. I would have guessed the Middle East

Canada rocks. I've been to Toronto and my aunt's good friend (almost a sister to her) lives in Alberta
