Tom Brokaw Explains Canada To Americans

Here's a really great short video narrated by Tom Brokaw for US television on Canadian-US relations and history. There are some really great moments in there, like the hosting of stranded Americans during 9/11 and the incredible natural resources and landscapes that we share.

We have our differences and they are important, but there are no two countries that are more alike and whose people are more alike. We deride and undervalue that relationship to our own detriment. We overhype it and think it defines us to our erasure.

Much better to use the Olympics to promote a positive good, then to use the Olympics for petty partisan gain.
