Friendly Warning: This article is about Canada, Canadian athletes, and all the good things Canada possesses. Therefore, if you are tired of "evil Canada" or everything about Canada - you should divert your attention elsewhere.
I found this article this morning - and I thought it was really well written, and funny! It is interesting to read an American's paper take on Canada and the Games as well.
Nine in 10 Canadians believe they live in the best country in the world, according to a poll last summer for The Globe and Mailand CTV.
Canadians understand funny. Once, when a tape recording revealed Richard Nixon had called him that earthier version of icehole, Trudeau quipped, "I've been called worse things by better people."
Will soon have no choice but to fix their gaze on the True North, strong and free. Oh, and if you don't know that last phrase, get used to it. You just might be hearing O Canada quite often in the weeks ahead.
