More of a fun romp than travel guide; gives you a basic idea of the lay of the land, but not very much in the way of information. Many beautiful sweeping shots of nature. Wright and Harding simply gloss over Montreal and Vancouver, respectively. Fun and light, though; one of the better moments: Harding stops at a saloon in the Yukon to take on the "Sour Toe Cocktail" -- one part Yukon Jack and one part petrified human toe. The look on his face as he's presented with a gallery of gnarled, mummified toes to choose from is priceless! Just a note for any parties concerned: Harding visits a marijuana dispensary in Vancouver and you'll clearly see ground bud being rolled into joints and smoked; Wright drops in on a seal skinning competition and you'll clearly see seals turned inside out. Yum!

This program for exploring the different activities around Canada was very interesting and most enjoyable. Canada isn't as boring as some may assume.
