Canadians love their country, and they love their CORNER GAS. What better way to celebrate being a Canucker than with THE CANADA DAY CORNER GAS-A-THON?!
Family, friends and fireworks aside, viewers can now celebrate their true-north-strong-and-free by filling up on this iconic, all-Canadian comedy series.

Once fully equipped, viewers can relive each gut-busting CORNER GAS moment. Watch as Lacey competes in an eating competition in â€œFull Load,â€ Karen and Davis win a meat lottery in â€œMeat Waveâ€, and Dog River tune out in â€œTV Free Dog River.â€ Then, follow the gang to the big city…erâ€¦Regina, as they discover the reason behind Brent’s regular Wednesday night disappearances in the climactic series finale, â€œYou’ve Been Great, Goodnight.â€
The series finale of CORNER GAS aired April 13 and marked the end of an era in Canadian television with more than 3 million viewers, making it one of the most-watched television broadcasts in Canada this season.
