The Harper government has been hammered lately for economic action plans that some say just promote Tories and for green-lighting a controversial reality show that featured a border raid in British Columbia.

Naturally, “22 Minutes” has found a way to make light of both hot-button issues.

This Hour Has 22 Minutes airs on CBC TV Tuesday nights at 8:30 p.m. Catch more clips of the show on Facebook and Twitter.
