I was re-watching the "Bats' episodes where Stephen talks about the Dion Quintuplets of Canada, he says that Mike Harris was the Canadian Prime Minister that went and apologized to the surviving Dion Quintuplets. Mike Harris though was never the Canadian Prime Minister, he was the Premier of Ontario and apologized on behalf of the Ontario Provincial Government.

Thank you. I could not find anything on the site that mentioned it so I thought I would mention it.

....Like everyone who is a fan of this show, I do love the exposure of the "obvious" answer, and the passing-on of the more "correct" information, even when the point is moot, and, so often, downright pedantic. that's the fun of this format, and Stephen carries it off brilliantly.

That said, researchers should beware of gainsaying every obvious answer, 'cos sometimes they are correct.

e.g. Canadians will tell you that igloos ARE made of snow..... the example shown of the caribou-skin shelter is authentic, but so much of the high arctic is devoid of large animals. Most igloos are snow blocks...it's the only building material. Having said that, igloo-building has been replaced by conventional housing in permanent settlements. It's a dying art.

Series "B":
I was going to comment on non-Prime Minister Mike Harris, but............

A wise choice - much better to forget about him completely.
