The latest episode of Saturday Night Live had a Canadian-themed sketch, full with references to Drake, Degrassi and the CBC.
Guest host Issa Rae performed a Toronto correspondent at a French-Canadian information channel within the piece titled Bonjour — Hi.
She stood in entrance of a inexperienced display picture of Toronto’s waterfront for a information channel phase known as Drake Watch, and held a microphone emblazoned with the CBC emblem.
Rae and two information anchors had French accents as they chatted about whether or not she had seen the Toronto rapper.

She stated she confused him with a man utilizing a wheelchair, which is a reference to Drake’s character Jimmy Brooks from his days starring on the Canadian sequence Degrassi: The Next Generation.
There had been some other Canadian components to the SNL episode — Toronto-born actor Jim Carrey returned to play U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, and Stratford, Ont.-raised pop star Justin Bieber was the musical visitor.
