Super Bowl Commercials in Canada

In Canada, we don’t get to see many, if any, Super Bowl commercials. They override them with normal, boring commercials that we see all the time already. It’s a real disappointment to miss out on what’s considered, for good reason, a big part of the show.

Today: a new hypothesis. Is the overriding of the commercials required to satisfy CanCon? (Canadian content laws)
Thoughts?

 

EDIT: Apparently, it’s not.  The American companies only pay to have ads aired in the States, and the Canadian network that sim-subs the feed gets to sell their own commercial space to pay for the sim-sub, just like every other American show they air.  Thanks, friends!
