Canadian Forces on Standby

The Canadian Forces are on standby to help the disaster relief efforts in the United States.

You know, I'm not the most pro-American person in the world, (that's being kind) but I think Canadians should still feel a certain sense of pride in the friendship we've managed to maintain with the US for as long as we have, and even though the help that we are able to provide is necessarily smaller than that which they can muster themselves (we are a nation that is 10% the US' size in population, after all) we are still at the ready to help our American friends. It is a testament to what civilized nations can accomplish in friendship, and a reaffirmation of the two countries' committment to look out for one another, like the brothers that we metaphorically are, even if we don't always agree.
