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.
DON'T EV-ER CHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANGE!!!
