My campaign to promote Dog River is working. An American tourist has come here accidentally.
Mayor Fitzy, "An American in Saskatchewan".

Bill is from Wisconsin and visits Dog River by accident, getting lost on his way to a hunting lodge at Deer Lake.


Season 2

Lost, Bill arrives at Corner Gas looking for directions. However, Brent, Wanda and Lacey make light of his situation and depart, leaving Bill perplexed. At the Ruby Cafe, Bill asks what there is to do in town but all Emma can think of is to see Davis' wood pile. Karen arrives and asking Lacey for the soup de jour, patronizes Bill with a translation. He decides to learn French but everyone confesses they can't speak it. After Mayor Fitzy asks Hank to be the town's ambassador and show Bill around, Hank meets Bill and immediately starts to insult him. At the Ruby, Hank believes Bill is ignorant of Canadian money but Bill has some and thinks having different coloured bills makes sense. Fitzy arrives to see how Hank is performing but after listening to Hank tease Bill that they can go see polar bears, Fitzy gets Brent to agree to be ambassador and host Bill.

Am I close to Deer Lake?
After Brent shows Bill the pile of lumber owned by Davis, they enter the Liquor store so Bill can get some cash. Pushing through the crowd, they find no one using the ATM and it's covered in flyers. Hank enters the Liquor store where Bill demonstrates excellent knowledge of Canadian government procedures. Hank still takes the opportunity to deride Bill. In order to break up the ATM crowd, Brent suggests to Fitzy, Lacey and Oscar that they should talk to them. However, Brent plan doesn't work and he, Fitzy, Lacey, Oscar and Bill (who tried to help them) all end up stranded at Hank's house. Asked if he'll ever return to Dog River, Bill deadpans only if he wants to be part of a bizarre sociological experiment. ("An American in Saskatchewan")
