I am honoured! Amazing! Thanks so much to the BC Entertainment Hall of Fame for inducting me! Soon my star will be placed in the pavement on 'The Walk of Fame' on Granville St. in Vancouver, BC Canada! 30 different people nominated me for this and I am so grateful for them (and you!) for believing in me! I would like to dedicate this Star to my Mom who instilled in me a deep love of history. Also, if I, Nardwuar the Human Serviette, can do it...so can you! Doot doo!
