Synopsis

After moving to the United States when he was 17, and living in Los Angeles for years, comedy writing guru Robert Cohen finally got tired of people outside of Canada not knowing, caring, or even thinking about Canadians. Not that there is any rule they should, but Cohen thinks Canadians should be seen as more than vanilla aliens, Americans-lite, who spent most of the year encased in ice, "hunting moose with hockey pucks" (a direct quote from someone in LA, with no irony). Cohen has had enough of battling these annoying stereotypes. But, having lived outside Canada for so long, he wanted to make sure what he had been battling for was still the way he remembered it. Taking a road trip across Canada, he speaks with a variety of fellow Canadians, some more well-known than others, to get their opinions on his lifetime issue.
