Audio Vérité of a Real Canadian

Facing the potential damage to Canada's international reputation after hockey riots in Vancouver, the CBC followed a typical Canadian for a day and produced this owl-on-the-wall documentary to reveal just how mild-mannered they really are.

No they didn't, this is a comedy sketch. But they have been producing a light-hearted look at the Strange Animal that is the human being. The series questions why we swear/laugh/lack willpower and more. All the programmes, and that sketch, are avaialble to listen in full on their website.
