“One of the great luxuries of doing a rant or doing a commentary when you have a large audience, is you know that there are people from a broad spectrum of opinions and different ideologies listening to you.”
Host Alex Paterson kicks off a series of interviews with the 2019 recipients of the Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards with a conversation with one of Canada’s most treasured political and social commentators, Rick Mercer. Rick will receive the Lifetime Artistic Achievement Award on April 27. The two talk about his celebrated career as a broadcaster, his current endeavours, and the state of Canadian comedy.
