Rae and two news anchors had French accents as they chatted about whether she had seen the Toronto rapper.

There were some other Canadian elements to the “ SNL” episode on NBC and Global — Toronto-born actor Jim Carrey returned to play U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, and Stratford-Ont.-raised pop star Justin Bieber was the musical guest.

“SNL” is back to airing episodes from Studio 8H at Rockefeller Center in New York, after doing remote performances during the COVID-19 lockdown last season.
