No word on why this story is news now, but I can’t help but be a little amused by “Canadians Love Show About Ignorance, a stunning exposé on the vicious evil that is Canadian public television (I especially like the pointed reference to the “government-supported” CBC).

Of course, by linking to the story (this link was toast) I’m reinforcing what the story only hints mildly: Canadians are obsessed with being more than nice, forgettable neighbours.

“Notice us!”


“We’ll make fun of you if you don’t!”

Maybe Canada just needs to strike a committee on the problem.
