Corner Gas: Canada's Best Comedy

Canadians have a great sense of humour! My project is about Canada's Best Comedy. I wanted to show that our heritage can be fun as well.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

Any Canadian can have a positive influence. Brent has influenced others through humour. He has shown how great and unique Canadian humour is through Corner Gas. I know that I can have a positive influence on others.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Our heritage doesn't have to be based on something that happened hundreds of years ago. It can be built on something that happened in my lifetime. That is why I picked Corner Gas; because it has had a big influence on Canadians and how we see ourselves today.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I can relate to the lives of the characters depicted in the show because I also live in a small town in the prairies. I understand the jokes they make and situations they go through. I can see the characters reflected in my friends, family and sometimes in me. It helps me to use humour when dealing with some of the situations I face in life.
