Are you Canadian enough? Can you sing like Celine Dion? Do you have what it takes to be on Canadian television?

A parody on reality-TV auditions, a first-generation Chinese-Canadian man auditions to be the "Next Canadian." These humourous auditions critically examine the reality behind reality-TV, media and advertising, race, culture, Canadian national identities, and SARS.
