19 Canadian Heritage Minutes We'd Rather Forget

Who doesn't love Heritage Minutes? Who doesn't fear the smell of burnt toast?

Well, here's one moment we would rather forget.

Which got us thinking -- which other Canadian Heritage Minutes do we wish had never happened?

This unholy union

And this not so friendly handshake

Makes you wish for amnesia

Almost as much as this example of history repeating itself

This strategy for dealing with protesters

And an Olympic medal we could have done without

Why are you smiling?

Fake lakes and real riots

The Hells Angels have security clearance, right?...

... And overalls are formal dress?

This strategy for dealing with a breakup...

... And this one for a press conference

Let's just pretend 1976 never happened

"I just see myself in a pot of boiling water with all these natives dancing around me."

Anyone want some orange juice?

This Olympic fail

And the "Thrilla on the Hilla"

And every vest he's ever worn
