Canada wins dumbest government at World Stupidity Awards; Bush wins one award
MONTREAL (CP) - The Canadian government secured a surprise win Friday, beating out such luminaries as Iran, North Korea and the United States, for the dumbest government of the year at the World Stupidity Awards.
It also bested the United Nations in a hotly contested category that organizers said proved Canadians can compete with the rest of the world.
"Canadians often feel we're in the shadow of the U.S., especially when it comes to stupidity, but now we're proving we're world class," said Robert Spence, spokesman of the awards handed out during he Just for Laughs comedy festival.

See the link for the other winners. I liked Man of the Year.
I realize this is a comedy award, but really, this is a bad year to pick Canada. Balanced budget,,job growth,low inflation, C-38,national child care. We have our problems, no one can deny that, but this year of all years has been pretty good for us. I think this award is misplaced at the moment.
