Obama, Harper promise "new chapter" in U.S.- Canada relations

Listen to this story
President Barack Obama wowed the crowds in Ottawa yesterday, even though few people got to see him. During his six hours in the Canadian capital, Obama had a closed-door working meeting with Prime Minister Stephen Harper. He waved for a few seconds to a couple thousand people gathered in front of Parliament. And he made an unannounced visit to the Byward market to grab a "beaver tail". Obama and Harper held a joint press conference. David Sommerstein took advantage of the world's longest skating rink, the Ottawa skating canal, to get to there, and has our story.
