John Oliver On The Canadian Elections

The elections to the North are underway right now as you read this, as Canada’s Federal Elections finally come to a head after a mere 78 days of campaigning.

This is the second time John Oliver has done a deep dive into a major election not happening on American shores. Last season he focused on the Indian elections. This year it’s Canada. I hope that “Elections Happening In Former British Colonies” because a regular feature. Even if it means resurrecting Mike Myers’ career.

I love this segment, if for no other reason that Oliver explains the parliamentary system in a way that it sounds so simple, you wonder why they don’t do it here.

Oh right, that would mean the freaks in the House of Representative would elect the president. Nevermind.
