Laneia’s Team Pick: This is About Canada and Dog Food

Did you know there is such a thing as The Canadian Encyclopedia? Click those words and you will see it. (“Since its publication in book form in 1985, The Canadian Encyclopedia has provided the most comprehensive, objective and accurate source of information on Canada […]”) Before I published the following paragraph, I had to confirm the accuracy of its last sentence, so I googled “sctv canada” and found The Canadian Encyclopedia. Then I couldn’t decide which was more interesting: the following paragraph and the accompanying video, or the fact that there is a Canadian encyclopedia. So I decided ‘both.’

Go to Public School posted it then tweeted about their post then @Asherly RT’d them and then I made a Team Pick. Eugene Levy. SCTV. Lots of Canadians on that show.

Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. And support from readers like you keeps the majority of our site free for everyone. Still, 99.9% of our readers do not support. Autostraddle is fundraising right now to keep our site funded through January 2022. Will you join our community of readers in helping to keep us around?

Laneia is the Executive Editor and founding member of Autostraddle, and you're the reason she's here.

  1. Eugene Levy and his family/entourage once walked past me up close (actually I let them pass because I’m so polite) in a theatre at the end of a play! In Toronto!
    Not that I care obviously… >_>
    I mean he was an audience member. I wasn’t stalking him outside….

  2. Ha! The power of the internets! That commercial is so bizarre, I couldn’t help but pass it on. Luckily it found it’s new home on Autostraddle.

    Thanks for the love via team pick, Laneia.
