Canadians: Selfish With Beer, Generous With Skis
RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. In Sochi, the Canadians have filled an entire fridge with Molson beer, but it's not for sharing. The fridge requires the scan of a Canadian passport to open.

In sum, Canadians: selfish with beer, generous with skis. It's MORNING EDITION.
