Trent Featured on Rick Mercer's Monday Report - Watch On-line

Footage of Rick Mercer's foray into fencing at Trent University launched the season finale of his acclaimed Monday Report on March 29. One week to the day after his visit to the Symons Campus, much of the footage from the fencing practice he attended and from his conversations with students aired across the country on CBC.

During his visit, Mr. Mercer also took the time to pose for photographs with the fencing team and sign autographs. He also asked the students what he should see and do, in Peterborough on a Monday night. The students, having adopted a little of Mr. Mercer's wit, quipped that they would be staying in to watch Monday Report.

"Oh yes, the streets will be bare," Mr. Mercer joked.

He is best known as the star of This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Made in Canada, and Talking to Americans. In Monday Report, Mr. Mercer travels across the country and talks to Canadians - it also includes a monologue or "rant" on the state of the world. The show highlights his trademark wit, banter, and political satire.
