He is best known for his RANTS, but many Canadians also enjoyed his series "Talking to Americans" because it was just so funny. Basically, he did interviews with a variety of ordinary Americans on the street and would ask their opinions on a variety of made-up subjects. One such example was when he asked many Americans "should Canada change their national 20-hour clock to a 24-hour clock"....he received much support from many ordinary Americans as well as from the Governor of Iowa.
Please, American friends, don't take offense to any of that...it was all done in good humour and let's just admit that the majority of Americans don't know a heck of a lot about Canada! And that is ok.
Anyway, his latest RANT really touches a nerve. It is about Veterans being treated in a manner that no Canadian wants.
Basically, in a nut shell, our Parliament has agreed to cut spending by closing 9 Veteran's Offices across Canada. This will mean that the Veterans in the areas affected will now have to go to a Service Canada office and wait in line to be served. This upsets Rick, myself and the majority of Canadians.
I hope that everyone will play the below video. And get as angry as Rick is because of this treatment of our Veterans. Read the comments below the video, too. The comments show incredible support by ordinary Canadians for our heroes.
Rick - thanks for saying what needs to be said. Hopefully with this RANT, we can stop the Veteran's Offices from closing.
We will NEVER forget!
