The Royal Canadian Mounted Police thwart an Al Qaeda-inspired train attack, so Shep Smith shows Canada proper respect. (2:00)

AND, FOLKS, I AM RIGHT NOW BEING

TOLD BY THIS PROMPTER THAT

THERE'S BREAKING NEWS IN THE WAR

ON TERROR.

JIM.

>> CANADIAN POLICE SAY THEY

FOILED A PLOT THAT HAD SUPPORT

FROM AL QAEDA TO DERAIL A TRAIN.

TWO MEN ARE UNDER ARREST.

U.S. HOMELAND SECURITY AND THE

F.B.I. WERE ALSO INVOLVED.

>> THE PLAN WAS TO BLOW UP A

BRIDGE IN CANADA WHILE A TRAIN

WAS CROSSING, A TRAIN WHICH

TORONTO AND NEW YORK CITY

COMMUTERS USE.

>> THIS IS A TESTAMENT TO THE

STRENGTH OF OUR RELATIONSHIPS

WITH CANADIAN AND AMERICAN LAW

ENFORCEMENT.

>> Stephen: YES, THE ROYAL

CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE, OR

MOUNTIES, HAVE THWARTED AN

AL QAEDA-INSPIRED TERRORIST

ATTACK, WHICH IS QUITE A FATE

CONSIDERING HOW HARD IT IS FOR

THEM TO GO UNDER COVER.

FOLKS, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY A

WORD TO OUR FRIENDS UP NORTH--

YOU CANADIANS ARE A BRAVE AND

HEROIC PEOPLE.

IF I HAVE SAID IT ONCE, THIS IS

THE ONE TIME I SAID IT.

( LAUGHTER )

( APPLAUSE )

( CHEERS )

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, I-- I WANT

ALL MY MAPLE-BLOOD BROTHERS TO

KNOW THAT WE WOULD PUT IT ON THE

LINE TO PROTECT YOU IF THERE WAS

ANYONE WHO DISLIKED YOU.

( LAUGHTER )

SO THANK YOU, CANADA.

THIS IS THE GREATEST GIFT YOU

HAVE GIVEN OUR COUNTRY SINCE

YOUR YEARS OF SERVICE PROVIDING

A PLAUSIBLE PLACE FOR OUR

NONEXISTENT GIRLFRIENDS TO BE

FROM.

( LAUGHTER )

AND I AM NOT-- I AM NOT THE ONLY

NEWSMAN SHOWING CANADA THE

PROPER RESPECT, SHEP.

>> LET'S GET THE DETAILS.

IN ENGLISH AND IN FRENCH.

IT'S HOW THEY ROLL.

AND THEY'RE STILL SAYING HOLE

OVER THERE AND THEY'RE GOING TO

SAY HELLO FOR A LONG TIME.

THEY DO-- YOU KNOW, GOD LOVE

CANADA BUT THEY-- THEY-- THEY'RE

NOT GREAT AT THE TELEVISION.

( LAUGHTER ).

>> Stephen: SHEP'S RIGHT,

THEY'RE NOT GREAT AT THE

TELEVISION.

THEY JUST WASTE TIME, UNLIKE FOX

NEWS WHICH TODAY HAD A LOT OF

GREAT FOOTAGE OF CANADIANS

WASTING TIME ON TELEVISION.
