According to Wikipedia, Canada is a sovereign nation and not just America’s hat. It turns out our northern neighbors are rather proud of that fact.

According to the blurb on YouTube:

This advertisement was produced by the Government of Canada and features four heroes of the War of 1812: Major General Sir Isaac Brock, Lieutenant Colonel Charles-Michel d’Irumberry de Salaberry, Laura Secord and Shawnee leader and War Chief Tecumseh. The advertisement will be presented on our website, in movie theaters, and on television throughout the summer.

(Hat tip to Nilay Patel.)
