Both men spoke glowingly of the other’s nation, both reminded the world that the United States and Canada share much more than a border, we share a culture, a history, and a love of Western values and freedom.

Both men also expressed the fact that no two nations would ever agree on everything, but that we do have many areas of common interest and common belief. Both leaders talked of the bond forged by the shedding of blood and how our relations had been developed over more than a century of fighting for common causes, even as today both the United States and Canada work together to fight the scourge of radical Islamic terrorism.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
