What about Mexico? We already have a flood of Mexicans coming over here. Now whenever you go anywhere in this country Everything is bi-lingual. How fare is it that I have to learn spanish to do my job? Canadians are cool, at least they speak English.

I just think it makes the US look really really silly, this is being issued out to the world, and the people that produce it don't even realize that some of the footage is not even in their own country?

Anyway...

Bush is probably in the 20% of Americans that can't even locate the US on a world map.



j/k

I bet all you Canadians had a good long laugh! Though I can see how it is insulting.

The article in the Boston Globe quoted the historian from Niagara Falls NY as the one that was offended, we just find it hilarious!!

I'm all for sharing talent, landmarks, even our wonderful currency, but if you want to highlight a landmark like the Horseshoe Falls, at least take it from the NY side!

Unless they heard about it ahead of time, how many would even notice? I don't know one waterfall from the next up there.

If you have gone, and seen the falls from our side, you'd know. If one sets out to make a film like this, playing the ignorance card doesn't fly.
