The Canadian Conspiracy

CanadaThe passing of Peter Jennings got me thinking about The Canadian Conspiracy. The Canadian Conspiracy was a mockumentary from the mid 80s I caught on CityTV a couple of times. In a nutshell, we Canadians are infiltrating the United States of America, assuming control from within.

The main players were...

  • Lorne Greene, the leader
  • Lorne Michaels, the protege
  • Leslie Nielsen, the Canadian government connection as brother to Deputy Prime Minister of Canada Erik Nielsen
  • Peter Jennings, propaganda and disinformation
  • Morley Safer, propaganda and disinformation
  • William Shatner
  • John Candy, the henchman
  • Eugene Levy, the insider who risks his life to bring the conspiracy to light

Sadly, Jennings is the third player to pass away, following Lorne Greene and John Candy. I still miss John Candy.
