Canada's Worst Driver
Canada's Worst Driver (often abbreviated CWD) was a Canadian television series that aired on Discovery Channel Canada from October 3, 2005 to December 17, 2018, with reruns of select seasons occasionally airing on CTV. Based on Britain's Worst Driver, Canada's Worst Driver was a part of the Worst Driver television franchise and was produced by Proper Television whose president, Guy O'Sullivan, was the director of the original Britain's Worst Driver series until its cancellation in 2003. O'Sullivan served as executive producer of Canada's Worst Driver until his death in April 2017, doubling as executive producer of sister series Canada's Worst Handyman. As such, Canada's Worst Driver was considered to be the production company's flagship show and, with 14 seasons and 115 episodes aired, the longest-running of any Worst series to date. The series also aired dubbed in French in Canada as Les Pires Chauffards Canadiens on the Z channel with Richard Turcotte as host. Until June 2011, when Canada's Worst Handyman was cancelled and later replaced in 2015 with Blood, Sweat & Tools, Canada's Worst Driver and Canada's Worst Handyman were the two highest-rated programs on Discovery Channel Canada. On May 21, 2019, series host Andrew Younghusband announced on his personal Facebook page that the show would not be renewed for a fifteenth season, with no reason being given publicly for the series' cancellation (it's believed O'Sullivan's death may have contributed to the decision).
