Tom Brokaw Explains Canada to Americans

At the start of every Olympic games, there’s always an extended news piece – if you can call anything under 10 minutes “extended” – describing the host country to the viewers. The 2010 Winter Olympics is no exception, and in this video, NBC’s Tom Brokaw introduces American viewers to us, their neighbours to the north. In his voice-over, Brokaw says:

In the long history of sovereign neighbours, there never has been a relationship as close, productive and peaceful as the U.S. and Canada.

Speaking as the husband of a very lovely American woman and an employee (and most prominent blogger) of the Canadian subsidiary of an American multinational corporation, I’m inclined to agree.
