America, you're great, says Canada in #TellAmericaItsGreat campaign

There is a social media campaign orchestrated by people all over Canada to raise the American spirit in light of the current political climate.

Advertising firm The Garden came up with the idea using #TellAmericaItsGreat.

"Seems America could use some cheering up right about now. As their closest friends and neighbours, we thought we should take a minute to help remind them that no matter how bad things might seem at the moment, there are lots of reasons why we think they’re still pretty great."

The campaign seems to be taking off.

"We just want you to know that you are great. America is amazing," various Canadians say in a video posted to YouTube.
