Mercer raves about Sable Island

Rick Mercer is famous for his rants, in which he spells out the issues of the day in plain, and often hilarious terms.

On a visit to Sable Island off the coast of Nova Scotia, the beloved comedian seems enthralled, rather than engraged. And why not?

Visiting a meteorologist, a scientist, and a parks Canada representative—the island is Canada’s 43rd national park—Mercer introduces us to 3/5 of the island’s human population, while wild seals cavort on the beach, and the famous Sable Island horses feed idly on the grass-covered dunes.

It’s a magical place, and one few Canadians have ever visited. No wonder Rick Mercer raves about Sable Island!
