Paul Martin visits Canadian Tire with Rick Mercer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiCle1Vk4Sg

I’ve been explaining Canadian politics to RodneyHarrington, and found a 5 minute piece that beautifully (if quietly) illustrates more political cynicism, journalistic access, and tough questioning than the US media has displayed for decades. (True, it’s courtesy of our top satirist, but that fact just sums up our peculiar mindset.)

Rick Mercer pumps the monarchically-inclined, then-PM Paul Martin for answers, and performs some economical – if preservationally inacceptable – home improvements to 24 Sussex Drive.
