I'd say "Well done, Canada!" but Canadians are far too self-effacing to cheer ourselves on. In fact, we're well known for it. If you bump into a Canadian on the sidewalk ['pavement'], he or she apologizes to you!

Seriously, though: I think we often forget the day to day heroism of police, fire fighters and ordinary citizens, perhaps because their acts are deeemd not as 'sexy' or showy as the defusing IEDs and rescuing comrades under enemy fire.

I am proud to be a Canadian and bask in their glow. Huzzah!
