St. John's Celebrity Sightings
Well, anecdotal evidence suggests there are more celebrities per capita in St. John's than in Toronto (and I do see a LOT of celebrities in Toronto). In addition to Blue Rodeo on the flight over, Wendy and others report having Justin and Sasha Trudeau on the flight over with them. Wendy saw Mary Walsh in the hotel on her floor. I am currently in the airport waiting to get out and have seen the lead singer of Great Big Sea,Alan Doyle, on his way to a concert in Yellowknife, and pollster Allen Gregg is here in the waiting room. I suppose it might have something to do with being on a rare direct flight between St. John's and Toronto, if there is going to be a celebrity this is the flight they will be on. And is it a coincidence that Blue Rodeo and Great Big Sea are friends? It appears it is the season for Canadian concert tours!
