9. Those people of Gander are amazing. They're the people who opened up their town...

....to thousands of travelers from Europe who were grounded for two or three days in 2001 when our airports were all closed.

That was a great story, worth looking up and reading.

ZNY is on Long Island, that a long way from Newfoundland, that's great (Ronkonkoma is about in the middle of Long Island)

10. It's a musical, "Come From Away".

I saw it, very moving, in fact, it was Gander night, and the mayor of Gander was there!

17. Yes, I've watched that a few times. I wouldn't even have known about what the people....

....of Gander did, but a couple of friends of mine were on their way home from a business trip in Italy when they were told they would be landing in Gander. A couple of hours later they landed, spent some time being cleared, then were bused to a church. Inside the pews were set up as beds - blankets and pillows, along with soap and small towels and other things they might need. All of this was done while they were in the air, and done without ever expecting anything in return - just great human beings helping other human beings.

12. Hell yeah,

I just ordered 5 pizzas for our local control tower. A few 2 litter sodas, in case they wanted something to drink. It's wasn't that pricey. If you have some extra funds and can assist some unpaid agencies try to do it. It's just a thank you and we're better then Trump.

Gonna see if we can send some pizzas to the local FBI branch next week.

18. I was on the west coast - Vancouver Island

On 9/11, watching an endless stream of diverted flights coming into Vancouver International.

Like those planes on the East coast, they had no where else to go, since US simply closed itís airspace and threatened to shoot down anything entering it.

Essentially dumping planes they thought may be carrying terrorists into the hands of Canadian airports. Which could be considered fairly insulting.

But within about 24 hours the narrative began, Bush Cheney Rumsfeld and the usual assortment of Hannitys and Carlsonís, OíReillys - that the blame for the attack on NY was entirely the fault of Canada.

Regardless of the fact that entry to the US is governed by US border patrol, Canada was blamed, for our weak border control, our lax immigration policy and poor security agencies.

Not one of the 9/11 hijackers entered North America via Canada. Nor Mexico. They landed in the States, they took flying lessons in the States and were supposedly under surveillance by - but lost by American security agencies.

So while the gratitude that has been shown by Americans has meant a lot to Canadians, letís make sure the facts donít slip from the history books. Canada has no choice but to take in planes that the US was happy to let fall out of the sky - remember a lot of these flights had come from across the pacific or Atlantic and had no way of turning around. And in the aftermath, the US administration and much of the media then blamed Canada for their own failings.
