Seven Recipients Honoured by Walk of Fame

Canada’s Walk of Fame has released the names of the 2010 inductees for The Canada Honours. Among the recipients are singer Nelly Furtado, filmmaker Sarah Polley and magician Doug Henning.

The seven inductees will receive a tribute at the Cannon Theatre in Toronto on Saturday, Oct. 16. The event will be broadcast on Global and Slice after the Gala Ceremony. The broadcast will feature special guest performances and celebrity appearances that have yet to be announced.

"Canadians are now at the point where we are comfortable recognizing our achievements and honouring our own without the need of external validation. We have the confidence to stand up and take a bow," said Peter Soumalias, CEO and President of Canada's Walk of Fame. "The Canada Honours allow us to join together in this nationwide celebration."

Canada’s walk of Fame recognizes individuals for their achievements in different fields on an annual basis.

The seven inductees include Sarah Polley, David Clayton-Thomas, Nelly Furtado, Doug Henning, Clara Hughes, Farley Mowat and Eric McCormack. They will join the 124 existing inductees which include David Cronenberg, Eugene Levy, David Steinberg among other Jewish talents.

"Talented Canadians are making their mark on a global scale every day, and Canada's Walk of Fame offers a wonderful tradition paying tribute to these remarkable individuals. Canwest is proud to continue its part in this celebration and showcase these well-deserving inductees to our audiences on Global and Slice," said Barb Williams, EVP, Content, Canwest Broadcasting.
