I thought the closing ceremonies were an embarrassment.
Moose, beavers, courier de bois, and every other stereotype.
How many Canadians have even seen a moose or a beaver let alone have it as their identity?
I was hoping for something a lot more cosmopolitan, classier, and contemporary.
Even if you showed some of the inventions through the years by Canadians that have effected more change than any moose or beaver. Telephone, penicillin, basketball, canadarm etc.
If you wanted to show a beaver, keep it clean guys, they could have showed the DHC2 Beaver that opened up the north and still flies today.
Life's a journey......so roll down the window and enjoy the breeze.
