We are linked more closely than many think. Even Canadians. I learned a thing or two about our special bond than I knew. This was a piece from the 2010 Olympics. We shouldn't forget it though. Watch this NBC segment:

I knew about Ken Taylor ambassador to Tehran being a CIA asset - a spy.
Most Canadians don't though.
Personally I think that is reprehensible considering that the CIA created the whole Iranian hostage situation by exporting democracy to Iran by deposing the democratically elected leader of Iran in the first place and replacing him with one of the most hated rulers of all time - the Shaw of Iran...
That kind of meddling in our and their governments, and the propoganda attendant to that, is worse even then Israelis using stolen Candian passports for their international assination teams...

just sayin.

The US Canadian border splits my reservation. My mother,one sister and one brother live in Canada. I identify as Native American, but I'm half white. My mother is Mohawk. My father is white. My father's family came from Aunis, France in 1650 and settled in Boucherville, Quebec. Canada the word, in Mohawk, means "the village." It's ka-na-ta. Our village where we live, we call Ka-na-ta-kon. Our village is in Canada. I own a lot of Canadian silver and it's the purest silver in the world. I lived in Canada for a short time, about a year and a half. I did it legally. They made me get a Canadian Social Insurance number. So when I retire will I get money from both governments? It'd be neat if I did.

Nice find intrepid!

As a Canadian it's nice to see a positive serious portrayal of Canada... But I digress, America is a beautiful country as well as Canada... It's politics and pop culture that corrupt it. (At least in my opinion.
)

Funny you should post this now. I am an American in Canada at the moment. A tour director, I'm escorting 33 folks from Tuscon, Arizona around Atlantic Canada, including Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and we just returned back from NewfoundLAND.

Newfoundland is really quite isolated and beautiful. It's hard to imagine that only 500,000 people live in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador, and 475,000 are in Newfoundland! What I loved most of all about NFL was the people. What funny, interesting, welcoming and good people live there. And their isolation has kept so much of their culture in tact. Gros Morne National Park was especially beautiful. I'm actually sitting now in my hotel room overlooking the ferry that brought us back from the wonderful island.

Yes, Canada and the US are good friends---especially because during settlement years between 1603-1776 many of our citizens moved to one another's countries, and almost everyone in the Maritimes has a relative in New England or "the Boston States" as they call them up here. When the Acadians were kicked out of Nova Scotia in the late 1700's, quite a few New England farmers moved to their lands to take over their farms. They were called New England planters. Also, many loyalists from the US moved to this area after the Revolutionary War when George Washington kicked them out. Many of them ended up in New Brunswick with only the shirts on their backs.

Thanks for posting the video. Interesting timing!

These past Olympics had so many of these kinds of videos shown between games that, possibly for the first time, I felt genuinely proud of this country and forgot all of its problems, and I felt genuine brothehood with all the nations of the world. At the closing ceremonies, the Vancouver Olympic Committee chairman said that we had just seen the birth of a New Canada, and I could not be happier to see it come.
