Canada has always had a special place for The Shat

William Shatner, who just recently accepted both an honourary degree from his Alma Mater at McGill and a lifetime achievement award from Canada's Governor General (along with an acceptance video that went viral on NFB)  is a good example of the way we always welcome our ex-pat celebrities home.

But it's not the first time.

Back in the early '70s, between the cancellation of Star Trek and the beginning of the movie series ( won't bring TJ Hooker into this)  The Shat came back in forgotten role as spokeman for the Loblaws grocery chain.

The toupe. The delivery. The total Shatner package.
