When it seems as though the television programming here could not surprise me further, the most interesting item aired this weekend! The Tommy Douglas Story! As in, Tommy Douglas, the man who created Canada’s social health care system! Hilarity!

The blurb in the guide described the movie as follows: “…his commitment to social justice, his political acumen and pugnacious charm earned Tommy Douglas both the love and respect of millions of Canadians”

How incredible. I wonder how many people were watching this on a sunny Saturday afternoon? It was even a two-parter!
