Ah, Canada. You take a lot of abuse. We in the U.S. mostly consider you to be our rather large backyard. We look down on most of your cultural traditions (seriously, how have we not appropriated poutine yet?), we steal your most promising celebrities, and then we don’t even bother to check into your laws before threatening to run away to you.
Sure, partly you’re to blame for being so abused. You can’t be both practically perfect and blandly nice. It’s a combination that demands a certain amount of scorn. You’re essentially being the Ned Flanders of countries except you let us smoke weed inside you. So I understand why you’d maybe want to act out a little to shake off that “nice guy” image.
But, Canada? Stephen Harper is not the way to do it.
Unlike John Oliver, I definitely don’t have $5,000 to throw around so I am not advocating that any Canadian vote or not vote for Stephen Harper. But I don’t I heard anything about laws against personal insults of public figures. So while I can’t advocate kicking any giant assholes out of office, I am advocating that Stephen Harper should go fuck himself.
