Canada is about to have a major election. John Oliver enlists Mike Myers, a beaver, and a moose to give voters some advice.
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.
This is a really biased piece…
Wow so good. Love how big John Oliver’s balls are.
I don’t think I’ve ever been more attracted to Mr. Oliver…
haha that nod to the kanye telethon incident was hilarious
Didn’t know Canada had its own Tony Abbot
I am Canadian and I approve this message. Long live Mike Myers!
Love John Oliver and HBO, they have the balls to expose the criminal government activity like drone strike program.
on behalf of all Canadians, thank you john. that scum bag has ruined the Canadian image
Thanks for bringing this to light for other countries! 😀 Off to vote out Harper (I was going to before this little show anyway) but honestly, as much as I do not like the man. PLEASE PEOPLE GO VOTE! I DON’T CARE WHO YOU VOTE FOR! JUST VOTE!
Already voted “Justin”! :)
CANADIANS: DO NOT VOTE FOR STEPHEN HARPER!!!!!
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?
John Oliver and Mike Myers a grateful Canada thanks you for your comments
I hate the conservatives.
Aww goddamnit. Now this show will go on a 6 month hiatus. Thanks, Canada.
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.
As if this episode cannot get any better, Mike Myers comes out on a fucking snow plow!!
le sigh on apologism for religious extremism.
Still, Harper sucks.
Americans(writers of this show, not John) making fun of Canadian elections is a bit ironic, isn’t it?
Sounds like Canada needs some… *Eagle Screech* Democracy. Get out there and vote Canadians!
something about this seems very biased. was there really nothing better to do a segment on? Russia is fucking bombing people but you guys would rather choose to do a segment Centred around possibly effecting your neighboring countrie’s election? it’s shot like this that makes other countries hate America.
Wonder if he will be allowed in the country after this.
Stephen Harper has ruined Boston’s most beloved song. Quebec, I don’t think we can be sister-cities anymore.
Thanks for talking about Canadian’s politic! Love your show!
Harper got my vote.
You know what is not funny? Comedians taking positions on politics they know nothing about.
I like Mulcair, but he is no Jack Layton. Then again, nobody really is like Jack Layton.
John!!! 1. AWESOME 2. you missed the photo-op Harper did with Rob Ford at the big rally last week (you know, our notorious crack-smoking, DUI-apologist, profanity-spouting ex-Mayor?). Follows nicely from the “marijuana” clip…
Your money throwing skills are suspiciously great, strip clubs?
Mike Mayer got fat
you didn’t talk about bill C51
Still don’t know who to vote.
Labatt blue tastes like urine ? He obviously never tried Budweiser, Coors light or bud light. And who the fuck even drinks Labatt blue ?
Go vote Canada! Its our time to make a change.
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!
Fuck Islam, Fuck the muslims and fuck the refugees.
Save North America, Do not vote for Trump and Do NOT EVER Vote for Harper
Just done voting and seeing this I’m fucking dying. xD hahaha
I voted Liberal
Justin, make daddy proud xD
im Canadian… and I found this fucking hilarious. ?
This may not be very Canadian of me, but also being an Ottawan I feel compelled to point out that the photo of “Ottawa” that you showed was actually of Gatineau, Québec.
I disliked this video soleley because you reminded me Justin Bieber exits. Thanks John Oliver. You limey twat.
I will stay mad at you until your next video comes out just because I can’t say mad at you.
I’M SORRY, PLEASE TAKE ME BACK I LOVE YOU!
Ok so i should vote for harper?
I, for the first time disagree with you. First, emotional intelligence is as aimportant, if not more important than mathematical/Logical intelligence (Intelligence is not just one thing, there are several kinds of intelligence, look it up) Second, Fuck religion!
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
that hotline is for Muslim women/children who need help to escape there families or fear for there life’s , a father a second wife and son kill there daughters/sister because they were too westernized , who btw went to the police many times asking for help but the police did fuck all to help four Muslim women, who wanted to be Canadian !!!! and if you don’t think need that line then your a heartless fuck and there not reason to have child help line either
So, if a woman came into the bank with a veiled face, what should people think? Like -> its a bank robbery Dislike -> it’s a muslim woman doesn’t matter, no one knows
Soooooo…. Canada’s fucked???
GO Harper. Boy Trudeau – that’s all Canada needs, its own version of Obama. Watch the place tank if he gets in.
Dam… And I thought The United States had bad candidates……
A vote for Stephen Harper, is a vote for Canada’s conservative party.
Think about it
As a person named Justin, this was a little uncomfortable to watch.
I voted!!! 😀 Go Canada!
!!!!THANK YOU!!!! John Oliver and team for putting this together, Canadian’s wilful ignorance keeps this man in “power”. The more he is exposed, the better. Hoping for anyone but him to win tonight!
now I feel bad for being named Justin
This guy sucks
Fucking Canada, even if your biggest scandals are tame. One guy peed in a mug and another called an electric fence phallic. Alert the media. In 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.
It is sad john had to dumb this segment down so much just so americans could understand.
John Oliver is aweeeeessoooommeeeeeee!
John Oliver always speaks the truth but when it comes to Islam not even him dares to tell the truth about that religion, it’s a shame really that he’s trying so hard to please it.
Fuck Canada and Canadians…bunch of illegal aliens…
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.
I didn’t even know Harper had a band… wow
A well made joint looks classy as hell though.
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.
John, you’re awesome and I think the majority of my fellow Canadians would agree! Love this. This one tops your roast of the Canadian Senate scandal and I didn’t think that would be possible. Well player Sir, well played!
There’s no humour in this video
Hisssss my reptilian brothers and leaf a like
ZAYDEN! No kidding.
this show is excellent =}
John Oliver disgusts me he’s another mentally retarded left-winged airhead that shouldn’t stick his nose into Canadian politics. This is extremely biased (just like CBC) and bashes Harper, and promotes Trudeau. Like fuckin’ eh?
awwwwww my name is justin
i love you so much
This is not related to the video, but would be great for Last Week Tonight to have subtitles, closed captions, or a transcript of the video for people who are hearing impaired or simply trying to watch in the library without headphones. Thank you!! :)
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. #JohnOliver4EVER
Anyone else just wanna reach through the screen and give this guy a high five when he says something awesome.
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.
I wish I could vote today, but alas, I’m only 17. This segment was hilarious, I have been waiting for John to do a longer segment on Canadian politics.
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.
emotional intelligence is a perfectly real concept just saying
Very good for having happy election
That Kanye reference at the end tho
Disagree with the burka position. It certainly is oppressing of women, even if they “want” to wear it.
‘Johnny’s got his dancing shoes on!’
We will miss you John.
Dayum, Mike Myers is living that good life, son! Got fat. And still has his charm :)
Vote today, Harper = Trump
As a Canadian voting in today’s election, I have to say this is one of the greatest videos I’ve ever seen.
Vote Today guys. Good luck
