Michael J. Fox, James Cameron honored on Canada’s Walk of Fame

Michael J. FoxMichael J. Fox, James Cameron, The Kids in the Hall, Frances Bay, Steve Nash, k.d. Lang, Daria Webowy and Bryan Adams were inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame in Toronto on Saturday Night. Fox, who suffers from Parkinson’s and devotes most of his time now to raising awareness and funds for the disease through his own foundation, was accompanied by his mom, Phyllis. Bay, 90, who has appeared in countless Hollywood films and won a Gemini for her role on the Canadian series Road to Avonlea, signed autographs from her wheelchair as she made her way up the red carpet. She lost part of her right leg after being struck by a car in 2002. Bay recounted how she made her debut as an actress at age seven doing plays in her Manitoba hometown, but didn’t consider it as a profession until she turned 60, with a small role in the 1978 film Foul Play, starring Goldie Hawn and Chevy Chase. Supermodel Werbowy sported a cast on her left foot and explained she’d dropped a heavy object on her foot a few weeks earlier. Kurt Browning hosted the event, while Sigourney Weaver and former inductee, supermodel Linda Evangelista, were among the presenters. The Walk of Fame ceremony airs on CTV Sunday, September 7 at 7 p.m.

    Michael J. Fox is so so deserving of this honour. And how wonderful for is mom to be there and share in this honour. He is a class act all the way.

    I’ve always loved Michael J. Fox, he seems to be one of the few famous people who has kept his head on straight.
