The final chaotic season of Codco had just wrapped when Mary Walsh sat down at a Toronto bistro with George Anthony, then creative head of CBC TV’s arts programming. She’d been thinking about a news-based comedy show–did he think that would fly? He did. That was the early ’90s. Twenty-five seasons later, hundreds of thousands of Canadians continue to tune in weekly to This Hour Has 22 Minutes for its unashamedly Canadian, biting satirical take on politics and power.
25 Years of 22 Minutes takes readers backstage to hear first-hand accounts of the show’s key moments–in the words of the writers, producers and cast members who were there. Readers will have a front-row seat to the birth of the show–including a crisis that had producers scrambling in the very first episode–and offer an insider’s take on the highs, the lows, and the daily grind behind the scenes at 22 Minutes .

The Canadian Parliament Buildings are one of the world's most important examples of the Modern Gothic Revival style of architecture. The Centre Block houses the House of Commons and Senate chambers and is fronted by the iconic Peace Tower. The original Parliament Buildings were built between 1859 and 1866, however the Centre Block was re-built and completed in 1922 after a devastating fire destroyed the original building in 1916. The Peace Tower was added later in 1927.
