Published Feb 12, 2016As previously reported, Drake coached Team Canada in tonight's NBA All-Star Celebrity game. The team went on to victory, with Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler nabbing the MVP designation.
In his winning speech, Butler went on to sing Canada's praises, saying that he's loved living in Montreal for the last decade and a half, and he hopes America learns from our country in regards to health care.
Here's his speech in full [via Pitchfork]:
Thank you very much. I been, I've lived in the great city of Montreal for 15 years. I represented Montreal. If you guys want to fast track my Canadian citizenship, hopefully, this'll help my permanent residence. I just want to say that I'm retiring as a celebrity right now, so I will not be eligible for the celebrity game next year. I'm retiring as a celebrity, so I brought this home for Canada. Respect to Drake, respect to Team Canada. Alright.
I just wanna say it's an election year in the U.S., and the U.S. has a lot it can learn from Canada— healthcare, taking care of people.

...but then.. "We're talking about celebrity stuff, not politics". DANGEROUS! You entered a hazardous zone, Win. pic.twitter.com/iz2vhxxGIV— Arcade Fire tube (@ArcadeFiretube) February 13, 2016
