In its short history, Last Week Tonight has offered intelligent, scathing and amusing analysis of some of the world’s top scandals, but the show has largely ignored the plights of Canadians who’ve supported host John Oliver’s career since his days as a glorified Daily Show intern.

That’s why we were very excited to learn that Oliver took on Canada’s Senate spending scandal on last night’s program, which we thought might finally give this historic political misfire the international attention it deserves. We expected a fresh and lengthy dissection of the scandal that would finally reach young Canadians and inform them about what’s been going down on Parliament Hill in an entertaining fashion. Instead we got a three minute segment on how silly we are.




For more Last Week Tonight you’ll have to subscribe to HBO Canada OR somehow get a job working for the show, which is unlikely unless you have dual citizenship or talent so great that they can’t ignore you.
