2006 - Ski legends to screen legends

Eight new stars were placed on the Canada’s Walk of Fame to honour another talented set of Canadian luminaries Saturday evening at the Hummingbird Centre of Performing Arts.

Inducted this year was singer and songwriter, Jann Arden, model and actress, Pamela Anderson, actor, Brendan Fraser, funny man, Eugene Levy, musician, Paul Shaffer, Jeopardy game show host, Alex Trebek, singer and performer, Robert Goulet and Olympic ski champions, the Crazy Canucks (Dave Irwin, Dave Murray, Steve Podborski and Ken Read). International WWE superstar, Trish Stratus was the host this year and opened the show with a song and dance number for the inductees.

Robert Goulet’s powerful performance of ‘The Impossible Dream’ and Paul Shaffer’s duet with Dan Akroyd left the audience speechless while Jann Arden’s performance of “I would die for you” left them in tears. However by the end of her acceptance speech the tears would be that of laughter.
“I didn’t know I was famous until today, when they told me,” Arden joked as she accepted the award.

The show ended with a rare organ quartet performance featuring Paul Shaffer and three of the best organ players in the world. The astonishing performance was the perfect end to another incredible Canada’s Walk of Fame production.

Another successful year of honouring Canadians has come and gone and our Walk continues to grow. We are looking forward to Tribute Gala in 2007 and hope that you can all, once again share in the magic of this annual event.
