Sun News wants to be “Canada’s Fox.” This is not a joke. But it is very very funny.
“Now that they have their own Fox news, Canadians will soon be demanding that their border be sealed, to protect them from the violent and economically unstable nation to the south.” Alex Pareen in Salon today.
Gosh, this “Canada” sure looks an awful lot like Alberta — like almost exclusively. (It’s the descendants of East European immigrants dressed up as cowboys that’s a big part of the giveaway.) Love the martial rat-a-tat-tat of the snaredrum in the fadeout. What says Canada better than sublimated crypto-fascist militarism? I’m sure this project will thrive. It’s what Trois Rivieres, Sydney and St. John’s have all been waiting for.
