Tom Brokaw Explains Canada To Americans

This morning my sis in the "Old Country" sent me the following You Tube piece presented by Tom Brokaw titled - 

Tom Brokaw Explains Canada

 To Americans

No matter which side of the border (the 49th parallel), that you live, 
this is a piece worth watching. In fact I invite all of you to view the piece 
no matter which "side of the pond" around the world that you live, 
it is a piece worth watching.  It is not long, make a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy. (It is only a couple of minutes.)

O Canada - the true north strong and free.

I would love to read what you have to say about the piece.

PS - I apologize for the formatting problems tonight, I have tried four times to fix it, and I am throwing in the towel.

Formatting--I'll give you some tips when we get together. Now I need to watch You Tube!

The scenery is fabulous, it made me cry! And for the rest, it was interesting, didn't know much of it and I LOVE the comment about the economy at the end- very funny! and close to the bone too I suspect...

Hi Gran,
I think you have already figured out that I am a very proud Canadian girl. Win or lose in the Olympics, I am proud of the athletes who have dedicated their lives to performing their very best at the games. Proud of the beauty that is found all across this wonderful land in which I live - proud of the wide multicultural mosaic that makes up the place I call home..
It was an interesting piece that Tom Brokaw did-
I also am proud that I can call so many American bloggers my friends- my life is richer for it.
Happy Day dear lady,
Hope those toes are not paining you too much.
