The video lays claim to Canada's portion of the Niagara Falls (The big part that everyone takes pictures of) as a natural American wonder. It's shot from the Canadian side, too (http://www.infoniagara.com/attractions/indexf.html). Though the State Department has refused to recall the film; destined for airports, embassies and citizenship drives worldwide; some Canadians aren't too pleased. The media for instance: the CBC's title for the article is "US annexes Canadian landmark in new video promoted by the State Department" (http://www.cbc.ca/cp/Oddities/071028/K102806AU.html). Love it. This is right up there with Canadian Celine Dion signing at the Atlanta Olympics.
