Avril Lavigne, Rick Mercer, Tantoo Cardinal among those inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame


Pop-punk icon Avril Lavigne, political satirist Rick Mercer and hockey superstar Connor McDavid were among those inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame tonight at a special anniversary gala in Toronto.

The Walk of Fame, honouring notable Canadians for excellence in fields spanning entertainment to humanitarianism, is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Killers of the Flower Moon actress Tantoo Cardinal, the generation-spanning TV franchise Degrassi, and Michael Budman and Don Green, co-founders of outdoor lifestyle brand Roots, are also among this year’s inductees.

Hip-hop staple Kardinal Offishall is being honoured as this year’s recipient of the Allan Slaight Music Impact Honour.

Thirteen Canadian rock bands of the 1970s and ’80s — including Glass Tiger and Loverboy — inducted into the Walk of Fame at a special event in September will also be celebrated.

The event was hosted by Drew and Jonathan Scott of Property Brothers and Juno award-winning singer Deborah Cox, who received a star on the Walk of Fame last year.
