Tom Brokaw Explains Canada To Americans

Tom Brokaw,anchor and managing editor – NBC, 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, British Columbia, Canada on Feb. 12th, 2010.

I found it interesting because contrary to popular belief of underlying animosity between the Canucks and Americans, this video showcases the similarities and long shared camaraderie the two neighbouring countries share.

I think it would be interesting to see brands build on this friendship between the two nations that are so different yet come together when the situation demands it.

To sum up the relationship between the States and Canada, in the words of JFK:

“Geography has made us neighbours, History has made us friends,Economics has made us partners and Necessity has made us allies”
