IN AN ALL-NEW "SOUTH PARK" ON
WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2 AT 10:00 P.M. ON COMEDY CENTRAL
NEW YORK, March 31, 2008 � Canadians want more money and decide to stage a strike in an all-new episode of "South Park," entitled, "Canada On Strike!," premiering on Wednesday, April 2 at 10:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on COMEDY CENTRAL.
The head of the World Canadian Bureau leads the country into a long and painful strike and the responsibility of brokering a settlement rests with the boys. Meanwhile, people from Denmark flock to the U.S. and cross the picket lines to take the place of the striking Canadians. In conflict over whether or not to stand with their countrymen, Terrance and Phillip uncover the truth behind the outrageous cost of the strike.
