I am ashamed to admit Alex Trebek was born and raised Canadian. While watching Jeopardy tonight, one of the questions concerned the last word of the Canadian National Anthem. The answer was "Thee" and was given by Alex followed by an example: "My Country Tis of Thee", also given by Alex. Shame on you, how soon you forget. To jog your memory, Alex, it is "We stand on guard for Thee". Your Canadian fans deserve an apology. Russ Waite

I think what Alex was refering to a song "My country tis of thee sweet land of liberty of the I sing land where my fathers died land of the pilgrams pride of thee I sing" thou it is an American anthem it shows no disrespect to Canada.
