The crowds were going wild outside the Sony Centre for the Performing Arts on Saturday (Nov. 7) as seven new Canadians were inducted into Canada's Walk of Fame. Despite the cold and windy weather, hundreds of people lined Front Street in Toronto, waving signs and craning to catch a glimpse of their favourite hometown celebs as they unveiled their stars to the world.
This year's list of honourees covered a range of career achievements. From books and music to movies and sports, the Walk of Fame had these brilliant minds covered. Crooner Michael Bublé, actress Wendy Crewson, author Lawrence Hill, sports announcers Don Cherry and Ron MacLean, Olympic rower Silken Laumann and late actor Lorne Greene were this year's additions and they were all thrilled to be leaving their mark and telling the world they're Canadian, but they weren't the only national names on the red carpet.
Singers Johnny Reid and Shawn Mendes had also turned out for the big event, each with a special song planned for the evening's gala, which was being hosted for the second year in a row by Jason Priestley.
"This is absolutely thrilling and I’m completely humbled to be included with this year’s inductees they’ve all done such significant real things and I’m an actor," Wendy Crewson exclusively told Hello! Canada. Watch Wendy and the other honourees accept their stars during a televised special airing on Dec. 17 (Global).
