John Oliver, Last Week Tonight, and Mike Myers Risk Fines, Possibly Imprisonment for Canadian Election Segment
While most political ads that trash the opposition often seem juvenile, John Oliver and Last Week Tonight put a damning, well-documented case against incumbent Canadian Prime Minister, Stephen Harper.
Oliver chose the Canadian election, which happens today, for his main segment on Last Week Tonight last night and really pinpointed why Harper shouldn’t be in office anymore.
Apparently, doing so during an election in Canada is against Canadian law and Oliver could face a moderately hefty fine or even jail time.
Yet, John Oliver pushed on anyway and had the help of one of Canada’s biggest household names, Mike Myers.
