Helicopter Canada

It seems appropriate to put this up, what with me posting a track yesterday by the great Boards of Canada, who have stated that their name was inspired by fond childhood memories of watching National Film Board of Canada productions.

I also recall watching this as a child in school, shortly after moving to Canada, and it shaping my view of Canada. It was already about a decade old by the time I saw it, but that was a view of the place that was planted in my head. Like Paddle To The Sea, another NFB production that did a lot to shape my view, albeit perhaps a slightly romantic one, of this amazing country I now live in.
