One of the things I really keep meaning to write about is the sheer number of Canadians with disabilities that Rick Mercer brings on the Mercer Report. He's had Rick Hansen bungee jumping, one of the many curling teams made up of people with disabilities, the mayor of Vancouver who is a paraplegic... and he just kinda
has them on the show
without any "look, I'm doing a very special crippled episode!"
He just... shows people with disabilities
, and having political opinions, and living lives, and it's awesome.
I bet the mayor of vancouver would go kayaking - he goes on hikes in the woods.
