Ottawa welcomes President Barack Obama
I've been glued to the CBC this morning, watching Peter Mansbridge and his crew cover President Obama's first international visit since taking office.
There's not a lot to see, although Mansbridge just read the lunch menu, which sounded better than what I'll be having today!
In the meantime, Yes we CANada (or as they say in Quebec, Yes OUI CANada!). And I'm happy to read that eight out of ten Canadians approve of our new Prez.
