From October 8–18, 2007, Avi Lewis hosted the ten-part international documentary series Why Democracy? in Canada.
Lewis was a panelist in CBC’s Canada Reads, which aired on March 2–6, 2009. Canada Reads is a seasonal show in which celebrities choose a book and advocate on its behalf. He presented, and successfully defended, the winning book, Lawrence Hill’s The Book of Negroes.

Inside USA was first telecast on Al Jazeera on February 8, 2008, with the episode “Politics of Race”. Al Jazeera describes Inside USA as “an in-depth look at the real issues at stake in the US presidential election.”
Politics Of Race (February 22, 2008) focused on the situation in New Orleans and the disenfranchising of Black voters.
Native Americans (March 1, 2008) focused on Lakota Sioux separatism, social and economic issues surrounding the Lakota Sioux, Navajo and the Shoshone peoples. The last few minutes were devoted to the role online videos play in the American election – including a clip from “Yes We Can”.
In June 2007, CBC Newsworld debuted On the Map with Avi Lewis, a daily (Monday-Thursday) half-hour of international news commentary. Lewis discussed such issues as the “Oil Law” that the United States wished Iraq to adopt, women in Afghanistan, and what exactly is meant by the phrase “ungoverned spaces”. The show was officially renewed for November 2007 and then disappeared without ever airing again. On the Map’s half-hour time slot was replaced with a half-hour summary of the daily hour-long show Politics by Don Newman.
Lewis conducted a June 11, 2007, interview with political writer Ayaan Hirsi Ali. After repeatedly and openly sniggering at Hirsi Ali’s complimentary remarks about the United States, Lewis sharply questioned some of her views – including her denial of the existence of Islamophobia, her belief that Islam was inherently misogynistic, and her positive opinions concerning American democracy. Lewis compared Islamophobia to Anti-Semitism, seeing both as equally real, to which Ali replied: “Racism is a universal trait, so is antisemitism, by the way. But I want us not to confuse a set of beliefs such as Islam, with ethnicity such as the hatred against Jews just because they are Jews, or against blacks just because they are black, or against gays just because of- it’s something you can’t do anything about. Whereas Islam is simply a set of beliefs, and it’s not Islamophobic to say … this is being done in the name of your religion.” The interview provoked a strongly critical response from right-wing commentators in the US and Canada.
