Often, the "Daily Show with Jon Stewart" ties in a comedy segment to the guest. Canada was the running theme, but Stewart didn't give it away during the interview.
The show was discussing Israel and Palestine, and in the comedy part, "disclosed" that the true Promised Land was Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. If only.
In the comedy bit, Halifax has plenty of snow on the ground and magically has mountains … in September.
Then again, Halifax may have been chosen because of the H-sound (Challahfax vs. Halalifax) and the irony of Canada being a peaceful nation. "You can't even get along in Nova Scotia; it's the most polite part of Canada," Stewart said to John Oliver (Israel) and Aasif Mandvi (Palestine).
Stewart's interview guest was former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm, who is Canadian-born. Granholm was born in Vancouver and her family moved to California when she was 4.
Canada was not mentioned in the interview portion that aired on Comedy Central. You can check out the full interview online.
Late in the third and last segment, Gov. Granholm discusses why more cars are built in Ontario, Canada than Michigan, and cites significantly lower health care costs and that businesses don't have to worry about them. She didn't tie-in her one-time Canadian roots, and honestly has more of an impression of this battle from being Michigan's governor.
In addition to airing on Comedy Central in the United States, the "Daily Show with Jon Stewart" airs at 11 pm Eastern on the Comedy Channel and Midnight local time on CTV (12:30 am in Newfoundland and Labrador).
