Before that, a team of volunteer Canadians showered Maple leaves from the tower's observation deck. The organizing committee for the NYC Canada celebrations also replaced the water in the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park with premium Canadian Maple syrup. Also, all the 11 branches of Canadian donut icon, Tim Horton's gave away free coffee and Timbits.
OKAY. The maple syrup, maple leaves, and Tim Horton's are not true. But it's not too late, maybe today.
