GENESIS

Episode 1
GENESIS
“Ladies and Gentlemen, we all know why we are
here..”
“It is time for the big fish to leave the small pond…”
“Canada is loved worldwide. We have the ingenuity, the technology, and the moral superiority to be at the forefront of the world stage.” “And yet We, Canada’s proud elite, have been content to coddle our children on our knees in our little corner of the world. Madness!”
“Our strengths are many. Vast natural resources. CBC’s quality programming. Tim Horton’s coffee. The most MALLEABLE PEOPLE ON EARTH!” “We should be RULING the world, not renting it from the Americans! We need a symbol. We must do something to set ourselves apart! Something to shake the EARTH!”
But what shall we do?
Drop the A-bomb on Japan?
Claim our independance from

the British? For real this time?

Invade Iraq?
Vietnam perhaps?
Invent the airplane?
Don’t be a fool. We already

invented the airplane — the

Avro Arrow for Christ’s sake!

“Come now, people. I speak here of the future, and you prattle on about the past? What must be done is something new…Something visionary. I’ll tell what We’ll do…”
“WE WILL GO TO THE MOON!”
The Moon?
Think about it! We rally

the people around us, place

our cosmonaut on the moon,

plant our flag, and say

‘WE’RE
NUMBER 1!’

Genius Peter, Pure Genius!
Strombonopolis, make us

some coffee, we have work to do!

Canada to the Moon!

TO THE MOON!
