From John Law of the Niagara Falls Review:
- Rick Mercer’s not talking to reporters
“Mercer, whose latest CBC show, “The Rick Mercer Report,” returns for a fifth season this fall, showed several clips Thursday, including a classic sketch filmed on budget day 11 years ago when he convinced prime minister Jean Chretien to have lunch at a Harvey’s restaurant. Turns out, Chretien did it knowing it would steal the front page from finance minister Paul Martin, a political rival. It was a key lesson for Mercer – if you want politicians to do something, find out who “they hate the most.”
