With all the celebrities at this week’s Banff World Television festival, you knew that someone was going to say something stupid that they would probably regret later!

It is just too bad that it had to be Alberta MLA Lindsay Blackett.

Speaking on a panel Monday afternoon, the Culture Minister was quoted as saying: “Why do we make such shit here?”, speaking in reference to Canadian television and film productions.

Obviously that is a piece of shit statement in itself, so on Tuesday night, he tried  to backtrack by saying that Canadians make great programming and used Heartland as an Alberta-filmed show that is number one in the ratings.  Only 50% of that statement is true.  And if you ask me, his apology didn’t sound too sincere.

So in honor of Blackett’s ignorance towards Canadian productions, I thought I’d remind him of some of my favourite Canadian shows that definitely do not suck.

You Can’t Do That on Television
