  • Shockingly anti-Canadian

    This was a shockingly anti-Canadian episode. It was insulting and demeaning to Canadians and the Canadian building industry. Shame on Home Makeover for taking cheap shots at their neighbours to the north. I'm not the only one who is no longer watching Home Makeover.
  • A shameful display of Canada Bashing. What were you thinking Canadians would think of this? Did you think we would laugh at it? Get a grip

    I have watched the show faithfully ever since I discovered it a couple of years ago. Ever since I purchased a pvr I have set it up to record new and old episodes. I have loved it that much. But today I watched a re run of the Season 1 episode 14, the Imbriani family. I don't know why you chose to totally trash the Canadian connection in this episode. I found it disgraceful how you made a big deal out of calling in Ty's words "pretty much every contractor in the US. Now what do we do? I know, let's try Canada" You got someone to "throw it all on a truck and drive on down" then you ragged on how it took a whole day to drive it down. then you complained quite a lot and quite vocally how you didn't like the Canadian Contractor not knowing about California building codes. Then you complained because he didn't finish the house and you had to call in a good old US contractor.

    Then you had the cast sing that disgusting disgraceful song at the end of the episode, further trashing Canada. I think you owe all of Canada an apology. You have in all likelyhood alienated a great number of us who used to watch your show faithfully.moreless
