White House among those gushing about Canada following Obama visit - Yahoo! Canada News I don't know how much of you guys actually care because of this, but personally I think it's good to see. The relationship between Canada and President Bush wasn't so great, but it's great to see Obama getting a good reception, and people really enjoying him. Also it's great to see him really enjoy Canada and it's people. He stopped on the Canal(it's the biggest ice ring in Canada) for a beaver tail(look it up on google images if you dont know what it is) which was pretty cool to see and hear. So overall it was a great visit for Obama in Ottawa, which is great news.
