Message for our American Guests
About 75%-80% of our guests are from the United States. Over the years, we have had direct, personal contact with thousands of people from all corners of this great nation to the south of our border (we're based in Canada). We've had guests from Florida, Texas, New York, Pennsylvania, California, Wisconsin, Maine, Oregon, Georgia... the list goes on. We seem to have an unusually high number of guests from Alaska (we don't know why - but that's fine by us). Our USA guests are always a pleasure to work with and we often feel a twinge of sadness when our business relation comes to an end, and we go our separate ways.
It's with you in mind that we share some of your pain in response to recent events in Washington D.C. We've always considered the USA as the world's premiere center of innovation and creativity, as a powerful standard bearer for what's right and wrong, and despite occasional missteps (completely normal for any nation), over the years, we've taken for granted that the USA will be our strongest ally on the path to progress, in the struggle for human rights, and in the quest for peace, democracy and prosperity.
We've noted how many large companies in the USA have taken a variety of impactful measures to support efforts at keeping the ship of state on an even keel in the past couple of days. CNH Tours would like to join in that effort - though all we feel we can do is ask for the privilege of standing in solidarity with you.
We wish all of our neighbours to the south the necessary sobriety, rational, clear-eyed thinking in the days, weeks and months ahead as you work at making things right again.
Best wishes, and warmest regards from your neighbours north of the border.
