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.
