Rick Mercer Report -- Viewable online again

Finally got a chance to look at some more of Rick Mercer's Report at the cbc website. There is a Youtube channel too but it doesn't have older material from what I can see.

I enjoyed this video a great deal and I wonder why there hasn't been more talk about this topic. In this link Mercer talks about how about 72% of eligible voters didn't vote in a long stream of federal by-elections. His very sound reasoning goes like this, voters feel like some guy who can't eat eggs without feeling sick feels when he's been told his choices for dinner are scrambled, poached, and sunny side up.

It's a shame, but Canadian politics has been going from bad to worse ever since I can remember.
