Canada’s Walk of Fame is a tribute to successful Canadians that we know as “celebrities” located in front of Roy Thomson Hall, The Princess of Wales Theatre, The Royal Alexandra Theatre on King Street and Simcoe Street. The design is a clever combo of star and maple leaf hence giving us our own flavour of national pride. The first 13 stars appeared in 1998, but there are now 131 stars honouring sports figures, actors, directors, writers, producers, songwriters, musicians, comedians, cartoonists and models.

Walking along I see my first big star and the most obvious if not one that would make any foreigner snigger…Celine Dion. Followed by the obvious: Bryan Adams, Christopher Plummer, Wayne Gretzky, William Shatner, Alanis Morissette, Donald Sutherland, Margaret Atwood, Neil Young and Michael J Fox. Walk a little further and really, who voted for this: Pamela Anderson??? Walk a bit further: Eric McCormack (that’s the guy from Will and Grace) if you didn’t know.

Where or where are the likes of Barenaked Ladies, Keanu Reeves and Sarah MacLachlin? And more shockingly where is Terry Fox – the man who ran across Canada with only one leg in support of Cancer Research! How does Pammy and her breasts beat the man who inspired the world’s largest one-day fundraiser for cancer research? Other important people missing from this list — if I do say so myself: Jason Priestly: significant to anyone in the 90s for bringing us 90210, Ryan Gosling for his perfect abs, Ryan Reynolds for just being perfect, and of course the one and only…The Beebs. Oh yes, Justin Beiber…I am becoming a Belieber. I hate your music, but you amuse me all the same.
