Like millions of humans right now, we’re burning time binge-watching TV shows. As we enjoyed the silliness of the NBC/FOX cop sitcom “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” there came an epiphany: Det. Charles Boyle looks like Andrew Scheer.
And then we went down a rabbit hole. So here is the Canadian politician fantasy cast of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”

Dubourg was a teacher before becoming a Quebec MNA in 2007 and then an MP in 2013 for the riding of Bourassa. Holt, played by Andre Braugher, is a mentor to Det. Amy Santiago.

Collins has a master's degree in human security and peacebuilding from Royal Roads University, has taught university courses and published a book. Linetti, played by Chelsea Peretti, would claim she has done the same.
