The union for Canadian performers ACTRA: awarded long time CBC radio host Barbara Budd a national honour calling her the “voice of Canada”. Among those cheering was Corner Gas star Eric Peterson.
Meeting such talented people reminds me how difficult it is for actors in Canada, where we are swamped by all things American. Would any other country allow its independent voice to be so smothered?http://http//www.canadiancontent.net/people/actors/
I have high hopes a more assertive generation coming up will fight to protect a space for their own talent on Canadian Radio, TV and theatre screens. http://http://www.friends.ca/files/PDF/polls/Canada-US_IR_report_final.pdf
