Canada is the butt of yet another international joke after Bill Maher roasted the nation in an eight-minute segment on “Real Time with Bill Maher” this weekend.

The HBO segment began with Maher taking shots at American liberals who often cite countries such as Canada, England and Scandinavia as “beacons of progressivism.” He then continued for more than five minutes demonstrating with stats how far Canada has fallen.

“Canada was where all the treasured goals of liberalism worked perfectly. It was like NPR come to life. But with poutine…an idealized blue state with single-payer health care and gun control and abortion on polite demand,” Maher said. “Canada was where every woke white college kid wearing pajama pants outdoors who’d had it up to here with America’s racist patriarchy, dreamt of living someday.”

He compared the 3.8% unemployment rate of the U.S. to Canada’s 6.1%. He said 14 out of 15 North American cities with the worst air pollution are in Canada.

He forgot to mention when comparing the two countries, nine out of the top ten provinces and state jurisdictions with the highest marginal income tax rates are Canadian provinces

“Last year, Canada added 1.3 million people, which is a lot in one year, the equivalent of the U.S. adding 11 million migrants in one year. And now they’re experiencing a housing crisis. Even worse than ours, and we’re sleeping in tents,” he said. “The median price of a home here (in the U.S.) is 346 grand, in Canada, converted to U.S. dollars, it’s 487. If Barbie moved to Winnipeg, she wouldn’t be able to afford her dream house.”

According to those numbers, the median price for a home in Canadian dollars in the U.S is $477,000 and Canada’s median home price is $671,300.

He continued by saying due to mortgage debt Canada has the highest debt-to-GDP ratio of any G7 nation.

“I don’t know what that means but it sounds bad,” he quipped. “And so does their vaunted health care system, which ranks dead last among high income countries in access to primary health care and the ability to see a doctor in a day or two. And it’s not for lack of spending. Of the 30 countries with universal coverage, Canada spends over 13% of its economy on it, which is a lot of money for free health care.”

He said he loves Canadians but wanted to cite Canada as a “cautionary tale” to show Americans the consequences of far-left policies.

To further demonstrate how far Canada has gone, Maher also took shots at the Oakville shop teacher who identified as a woman with large breasts, Kayla Lemieux.

“You can move too far left. And when you do, you wind up pushing the people in the middle to the right,” he said. “At its worst. Canada is what American voters think happens when there’s no one putting a check on extreme wokeness.”

Some Canadians on X remember when Canada wasn’t the brunt of the world’s jokes.
