    McKay SGA - David Hewlett: No More Mr. Nice Guy

    No More Mr. Nice Guy

    Television character gives Canada a new face

    Michael Friis Johansen

    Published on 2006-05-30 10:09 (KST)

    Canada has a new hero for the 21st century.

    He's not, as one might think, one of our military leaders like Romeo Dallaire or Lewis Mackenzie, or even any of the thousands of troops who have been sent overseas to fight in one of America's wars. It's not a sports figure either, like (as much as they deserve it) swimmer Sylvie Frechette or curler Colleen Jones, or any of the highly paid athletes who play in one of North America's professional hockey, baseball, or football leagues.

    This hero is not an environmental activist like David Suzuki or Elizabeth May. He's not a journalist like Rex Murphy or Peter Mansbridge. And he's certainly not a politician like Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper or New Democratic Party leader Jack Layton or any of the dozens of Liberal Party leadership hopefuls.

    Actually, Canada's new hero is not even real. He's a fictional character named Dr. Rodney McKay who's been on American television for almost two years and is now appearing in syndication on Canadian cable.

    **significant snippage**

    OK I have a sense of humour but wtf was this!

    " He is not tall, dark, or handsome -- although some women (and presumably some men) might find him cute in a frog-like way no one is liable to swoon over his looks. "

    Well of course I BEG to differ! Poor Rodney he can't get a break.

    Thanks morjana.

    Yeah... and what was that about America's war? Last time I checked terrorists don't just target America... I seem to recall both England and Spain having been victims of attacks in the recent years
