Is it possible that the French Canadians are actually worse than the French?
I understand it if Canadian officials have a problem with Conan's show making jokes like that about Quebec because it's divisive to the Canadian people.
The French Canadian separatist thing is a VERY touchy issue in Canada. Being that Conan got subsidized by the Canadian gov't, it may not be the best idea to do things like that.
American officials would raise a stink too if some Canadian TV show got paid by the U.S. Gov't to do a show and made a bunch of abortion jokes.
What did they expect? His show was really not that much different than the ones in NY.
They obviously could've done without those few jokes, being that they did a week's worth of shows there.
It's just a hot button issue.
You expect everyone in Canada just to take those jokes and roll with the punches?
Yes that is why they are called jokes. If they had told him up front not to make jokes like that then that is one thing. If they did not they need to get over it.
Besides it was not everyone in Canada it was Quebec.
Canada is a joke. They need us....we don't need them. So they can take their French speaking asses and f*%k off.
