Jon Stewart last night couldn't resist telling the story of Canada's Rob Ford, the mayor of Toronto who might have a crack habit based on video viewed by news organizations (even though Ford is resisting as much as he can). So Stewart turned to Senior Canadian Correspondents Samantha Bee and Jason Jones, who revealed that crack smoking is par for the course in their native land.
Stewart was befuddled, as he associated Canada with things like "politeness and clean streets." Bee explained: "Why, sure, Jon. It's all of that on the surface." To which Jones added: "And just under that surface is a thick layer of crack."
