Kathleen Stephenson speaks with Chris Cannon, co-author of America, but Better: The Canada Party Manifesto about the new satirical political party and its CANADAcy for president of the United States.
Chris Cannon and co-author Brian Calvert say that as the American election increasingly resembles a production of CATS performed by actual cats, U.S. citizens are looking for a new leader. That leader is Canada, and they want your vote for president of the United States.
Since launching their video campaign in January, the Canada Party has gone viral, with almost a million hits on YouTube and coverage ranging from CNN and the BBC to the Huffington Post and German State Television. Their new book, America, but Better: the Canada Party Manifesto, balances the doctrine of American exceptionalism with a dose of Canadian humility and common sense in an effort to secure Canada as the new leader of the free world, by proxy.
