Before we jump into the heavy stuff lets look at something fun.
Brendan Richmond's Canadian comedy song "Out For a Rip" went viral in 2013 raking up over 12 million views, but this Canada Day he was shocked to find his trademarked catchphrase on the side of Coca-Cola bottles.
So he lawyered up and released a followup song, titled "Out for a Sip" which doubles as the best legal demand rap video ever made.
Then onto the heavy stuff.

Time to fact check what the politicians and political pundits are saying.
