Sarah’s Canada election tweet triggers concern

Huffington Post Canada reported this way about Sarah’s political tweet this morning.






American comedian Sarah Silverman has waded into the Canadian election by publicly endorsing the NDP — even though it appears to break federal rules.

The personality tweeted her support for Tom Mulcair’s NDP and in particular Vancouver­Granville candidate Mira Oreck on Sunday morning.


Silverman highlighted the debate around the niqab which has taken over the campaign narrative in recent days. The Tories seek to ban the wearing of face coverings during the oath of citizenship, while New Democrats and Liberals back a court ruling calling such a ban unlawful.

Oreck, who is in a tight Vancouver race against Liberal Jody Wilson­Raybould, is a political activist and consultant. She worked with Silverman on a video about voter engagement during the 2012 U.S. election.

While the high­profile endorsement from Silverman is eye­catching, it may also be illegal. Under Section 331 of the Canadian Elections Act, foreign citizens not living in Canada are prohibited from endorsing political candidates. However, the statute is rarely enforced. Despite that, Mulcair welcomed the support.

Silverman also retweeted a post from Canadian entertainer Raffi Cavoukian that called out a proposed Conservative tip line for “barbaric cultural practices” like forced marriage, polygamy, or female genital mutilation.

Last month, Jeremy Bird, a former top organizer for Barack Obama — who is now advising the NDP — predicted that Mulcair is the only person who can defeat Stephen Harper.

Gravy now open in LA and NY

Marquis100215NYCIf you want to see Gravy in a theater, you have to live in or near Los Angeles or New York, and you better not procrastinate too long. Its two-city-only opening was yesterday, it’s only at one theater in each city, playing only once daily, and it might not be around after a week. (If you would be just as happy watching at home instead, it will be on demand starting October 6.)

Gravy is at the Laemmle NoHo 7 (5240 Lankershim Blvd.) in Los Angeles and at City Cinemas Village East (181-189 Second Ave.) in New York City.

Audio: Sarah on Doug Loves Movies 9/18/15

DLMarrowSarah was on Doug Benson’s Doug Loves Movies (along with film critic/author Leonard Maltin, comedian/actor Owen Benjamin, and comedian/actress Esther Povitsky), September 18 (and later podcast) from the Los Angeles Podcast Festival. If you like podcasts and are a Sarah fan, it’s a fun listen, as they play movie knowledge games, and Sarah shows her cinemaphile skills. But remember it’s almost 90 minutes (73 minutes if you jump right to the 12m:15s mark when Sarah enters.)
