Today is election day in Canada. So John Oliver took the opportunity last night on Last Week Tonight to tear apart current Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Oliver critiques all of the candidates on the ballot, but especially Harper, who has been in office for nearly a decade.
“Don’t be deceived by his bland exterior. Where there is banality, there is evil,” said Oliver. “For instance, Harper’s government has passed numerous laws weakening environmental protections, they’ve scaled back health care for some refugees—which a federal court called ‘cruel and unusual treatment’—and Harper himself has taken an extremely strong position on marijuana.”
In an incredibly outlandish end to the show, Oliver welcomes Mike Meyers to the stage (dressed as a Mountie, driving a snow plow) to convince Canadians not to vote for Harper.
