The view from Vancouver

Brian Williams, anchor and managing editor

It's been interesting today to watch the live coverage of the health care summit going on at Blair House in Washington—from Canada. That we are here during this story has not been lost on us: tonight you will see a report (since Canadian health care is so often invoked in this debate) on the reality of care here. I've watched most of the proceedings today—I don't see our country's problems getting fixed today. While I believe discussion is always a good thing, if it goes nowhere it's just discussion. Health care is just one problem rolling down the track toward us.

It's snowing back home—and it might have been our warmest day here in Vancouver, as our trip here nears an end.  We hope to see you tonight from Vancouver.
