I thought this was for real?
25 May 2003 | by Lebrocq17See all my reviews

I will never forget watching this show. I was still in highschool and my mother and I laughed and laughed when we saw it. Everytime they showed pictures of Canada it was snowing, people were in igloos, that kind of thing. As it turns out the biggest laugh we got happened the next day. My mom was talking to one of her hairdressing regulars and brought up the show - the regular immediately jumped in to say - Isn't that terrible what the Canadians are doing to the Americans - I got so frustrated seeing that was going on I turned it off.
