This visual spectacle was shot by helicopter across Canada in 1999 and revealed to Canadians on New Year's Day 2000 as a celebration as we entered the new millenium. I remember how taken I was with the footage as the helicopter covered Canada, north to south, east to west.
In August of 2000 as I was about to depart to Taiwan to begin my life as an English teacher my Auntie Wanda gave me a VHS copy of Over Canada to take with me - so I would never be homesick. If she only knew how many times I would play this video tape over and over again, watching it with fellow ex-pat friends, all of us shedding tears over the homes we had left behind.
When I was moving to Australia I wanted to find a copy on DVD so I could have that piece of home with me while I traveled. Sadly I couldn't find a DVD copy before we left and for the 9 months we were abroad, I missed out watching it with Australian friends.
Many thanks to Dave who hunted high and low for those 9 months, finally discovering a used copy at a record store. I will treasure this forever. I hope you all enjoy the trailer as much as I enjoy the entire hour of footage each time I watch it.
