Terry Fox's statue looks over Thunder Bay

Terry Fox, Christine Sinclair inducted to Canada’s Walk of Fame; Carly Rae Jepsen honoured

British Columbia's brightest were honoured in Toronto, with Port Coquitlam's Fox receiving large cheers.

It was a banner day for British Columbia on Saturday, as two high-profile residents were inducted into Canada’s Walk of Fame in Toronto – Port Coquitlam’s Terry Fox and Burnaby’s Christine Sinclair – and Mission’s Carly Rae Jepsen received the Allan Slaight Award, which honours a young Canadian in the fields of music, film, literature, visual or performing arts, sports, innovation or philanthropy.

Fox drew loud cheers during his induction, 32 years after the late cancer pioneer died following his Marathon of Hope.

Other Canadians inducted to the Walk of Fame were actor/entertainer Alan Thicke, actor Victor Garber, music producer Bob Ezrin, pianist Oscar Peterson, and human rights advocates Craig and Marc Kielburger.

The brothers Kielburger will be in Vancouver with Free the Children’s We Day concert at Rogers Arena, which will be held on Oct. 18, 2013.
