  1. Best Canadian show Ever. Best Show Ever. Finally a Doyle opinion I can totally agree with, except what killed that amazing show. It wasn’t CBC dropping the ball again, it wasn’t even when the show revealed how Americans own, control, and run Canada for their benefit and Canada’s demise, it was when the show began to reveal how a cabal of global corporations were (still are) plotting to create a new nation to be called Cascadia out of British Columbia, part of Alberta, and the U.S. northwest States. That’s what got the show killed. Everybody involved with the show believed that. How do I know that ? John Mann of BC band Spirit Of The West was in several of the later episodes, and he told us that bitty of information after one of their gigs we went to and asked for a photo with him, and we had told him how much we loved his appearances in the show.
