Rick Mercer shares his take on Canada's political discourse today
A lot has changed in Canada and the world since Rick Mercer signed off from his TV show The Rick Mercer Report nearly five years ago. The comedian and satirist, who's famous for his rants and love of Canada, joins Piya Chattopadhyay for a year-end chat and offers his thoughts on anger and divisions we see in the country today. Plus, he shares a holiday story featured in his memoir Talking to Canadians, which won this year's Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour.
