On February 28, 2010 former Star Trek star William Shatner made an appearance at the 2010 Winter Olympics Closing Ceremony. Shatner used his camera time to tell the audience how great a country Canada truly is, citing their "magnificent lakes" and "stunning sunsets" as reasons why the country demands so much appreciation. He also took a moment to give a shout out of pride to his hometown of Montreal. Shatner then introduced humor into his mix by reminding everyone that Canadian's are special because, "we are a people that know how to make love in the canoe" which, he added, is why Canada's health care system "covers splinters". Shatner also commended on the beauty of the country's Rocky Mountains and glaciers, and noted that minus thirty degree temperatures are "just another sign of global warming" . Shatner also linked Canada to Star Trek, calling the host country the "final frontier".
Sorry about the commercials.
