One thing the Olympics made clear to me is that you Canadians are a very patriotic lot. Whenever the Canadian national anthem was played at a medal ceremony, the singing was really loud!

Way to go, Canada! Thanks and congratulations on a job well done!

Thanks Bob. This will show to some that after all we are not much different from Americans, after all we are neighbours. Some will stick to their negative opinions but the majority will make the difference.

I think Brian echoes the feelings of most of us here in the States. We are different but a lot the same, like siblings almost. Here’s to Canada!!!!
