    Video: Tom Brokaw explains Canada to Americans

    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.

    To all Americans on the Board: it's an honour being your neighbour (or should I say an honor being your neighbor)!!!

    And the video made me a very proud Canadian.



    Cheers

    Fantastic piece. I missed the opening night of the Olympics, thanks for posting the link. Only disappointment is that he did not spend time on Ice Hockey!!!!!

    While riding a M/C in the 3 Flags Classic from Mexico to Canada in 1983, I would stop at vista points along the Canadian Highways. Not once did I stop and not have a Canadian family stop to ask if I was OK or needed help. Every trip to Canada has been a sheer pleasure and I am very proud to call them our neighbors and friends.

    The best part of the opening ceremony was when the RCMP Color Guard lowered the Canadian and Olympic flags to half staff in honor of the Georgian athlete that died that morning. They demonstrated the highest level of dignity.

    Thanks for posting!!!

    That was fantastic, I did not watch the opening ceremonies, so I had not seen this piece. It made me proud to be Canadian and I'm not even Canadian.
