CBC story on Brokaw

The CBC has a story about Tom Brokaw's visit to Gander. As well, if you search on the CBC site you will find the original accounts and videos. The diversion to Gander and the personal interactions were covered widely at the time. But the Brokaw story found the long-term relationships that developed and that was very special indeed. I did see the whole Brokaw piece and it was indeed terrific. It was carried on the Seattle NBC station that is on our Canadian satellite. By the way, I find it terribly ironic that in order to fly into the US from Canada we are subjected to extreme security while people within the US are not. While the 9/11 hijackers originated their flights that day in the US, the rumor that they were from Canada persisted to the point where Secretary Napolitano stated it recently.
