    Dear Mr. Oliver as you stated in your report as a Canadian I am not able to
    actually vote for Steven Harper because I do not live in his riding. So I
    will not be voting for Steven Harper.

    I think the biggest thing to note, is that Mr. Oliver was throwing actual
    Canadian 20 Dollar Bills.

    While I agree with the points of Oliver, I disagree with the part of
    “allowing people to wear whatever they like”.
    If you hide your face in public, you are hiding yourself from the
    consequences of any type of crime you may commit. That’s what thieves do
    and that’s why it should be forbidden anywhere.

    If people really think Canadians are the nicest and politest people in the
    world, I don’t want to know what else is out there..cause its sounds like
    the rest of the world are a bunch of assholes LOL. If Harper and Trump run
    North America (excluding mexico) and with hate that Trump has for Mexicans
    and Harper with Muslims …we’re in serious trouble.

    Thanks for bringing this to light for other countries! 😀 Off to vote out

    Covering your face is sending such a dangerous, alarming and threatening
    message to your environment and can’t really be justified (unless acid
    victim or anything like that) by any bullshit reasons let alone religious
    crap. Canada is a free, open-minded, friendly country so show your face
    present it to the world don’t let a bearded old arabic man tell you to hide
    yourself. let’s overcome this religious madness!

    He’s losing touch a little. Takes more and more words to get to the
    punchlines of his jokes, thus building up way to much tension than could be
    justified by the rather simple kind of humor that he uses. Maybe time for a
    few new writers?

    If Harper is reelected I will heavily consider moving to the United States.
    It’s a shame Jack Layton passed a few years ago, I think he really could
    have made a difference, but at this point it’s just important to get Harper
    out of a position of power. The guy is running Canada into the ground.

    something about this seems very biased. was there really nothing better to

    choose to do a segment Centred around possibly effecting your neighboring
    countrie’s election? it’s shot like this that makes other countries hate

    the big rally last week (you know, our notorious crack-smoking,
    DUI-apologist, profanity-spouting ex-Mayor?). Follows nicely from the
    “marijuana” clip…

    This was a great and timely piece, I wish there was more about the C24 bill
    allowing a bureaucrat to strip someone’s citizenship or the alarming powers
    granted to law enforcement agencies that no one asked for with Bill C51 or
    the stripping of funding for the coast Guard, or the muzzling of scientific
    research, or the retreat from a responsible environmental response, but at
    least we got to see the Prime Minister “sing” on HBO!

    i dont want john to go to jail, but he deserves the fine and i hope he gets
    it. you cant openly and cynically break the law of another country, and
    this law doesnt even seem ridiculous at all! no one should tell you what to
    vote, the law is there to prevent people to force you to vote for someone
    or for having an open influence in your vote or giving you something in
    exchange for the vote. it was fun, but i hope he is given the fine. because
    in the end who is he? he’s just a journalist a guy, not even the prime
    minister of canada is above canadian law. i still love him though

    Fucking Canada, even if your biggest scandals are tame. One guy peed in a

    Britain the scandals revolve around a guy sicking his dick in a dead pigs
    head, and in America it’s usually some kind of marital affair or someone
    rigging an election.

    I personally think that the Muslim veil thing is stupid and I can’t relate
    to it at all. But people wearing the veil thing doesn’t effect me one bit,
    and I will fight for their right to wear it because I want to live in a
    country where no one tries to take away the right for people to do
    something that doesn’t affect others because I wouldn’t want my right to do
    something that doesn’t affect others taken away.

    Emotional intelligence is a very real thing, John. While we are still
    developing how to quantify and measure it, all the indicators are that it’s
    much more important for life success than IQ. In fact, I would argue that
    politicians must be much better than the median at EQ. It’s basically their
    job to negotiate, manage emotions, and not make rash decisions. If we had
    politicians with more empathy, maybe we wouldn’t be as utterly bollixed as
    we are now.

    Love love LOVE this! Thanks for doing this segment! Hilarious and so
    informative!

    We don’t have many political pundits in Canada despite our rich, cultural
    history of producing comedians. A large part of this is that we have
    defamation laws that can conflict with the production of political
    parodies, so our pundits often times have to stay pretty dry.

    I agree with most of what you said, also impressed with you saying to not
    vote Harper, but I do have one issue with what you said. When you mentioned
    taking an oath of citizenship while wearing the Niqab. So if we follow its
    acceptable to wear a Niqab for the oath of citizenship, we can make the
    assumption they can wear it while choosing what the fate of our country is?
    As you said they can wear what ever they want. So when they go to vote,
    asking for Id is pointless because well, you can’t see their face and all
    they have to do is swear an oath. But anyone can do that, there have been
    male reporters wearing the Niqab and voted all while just pinky promising
    who they are. Or if your a women you may not even have to swear an oath
    because another female reporter did the same thing but not having to swear
    an oath! If you argue they can wear what ever they want to swear an oath of
    citizenship, then an oath saying who they are when they vote is no
    different. But it is so easy to pretend to be someone else and vote for
    them with the Niqab. So no if they wish to decide the fate of the country
    which they have sworn an oath to, they must show their face, simple as
    that, or I as a member of Stereotypical Canadians has every right to wear
    my toque and scarf covering my mouth to my nose for my religious belief.

    Amazed at the underlying hate of islam. Lots of the arguments don’t look
    into the history of the western world, when the western world wasn’t so
    evolved culturally and morally. Education along with the ability to think a
    moral code does wonders.
