Description

East York Hall of Fame to honour John Candy as their first inductee

EAST YORK, ONTARIO – On June 26th, the East York Hall of Fame announced that they would be honouring John Candy as their very first inductee.

The event will take place on Friday, November 16th and interested supporters can note their interest in attending at our event website - www.eastyork2018.com

"Today was about announcing our plans to ensure a wonderful and very talented Canadian is permanently recognized by our community," said Justin Van Dette of the East York Hall of Fame. "John was raised in our community, he went to school and played sports in East York and he also worked in our community."

In addition to his connection to our community, John played a pivotal role in keeping the CFL and Toronto Argonauts alive while balancing a very busy life as a Hollywood actor.

"As a great Canadian actor and comedian, the late John Candy put Hollywood and Toronto's film industry on the map. "His unmatched comedic style influenced so many other Canadians to pursue a career in the entertainment industry and made us so proud to be Canadian," said Mayor John Tory a proud supporter of the East York Hall of Fame. As CFL commissioner, I had the opportunity to work with John as he played an instrumental role in keeping the CFL vibrant and alive. I'm so happy to see that there will be a permanent recognition of John Candy's close relationship with the East York community."

It was also announced that the East York Hall of Fame will be located on the second floor of the East York Community Centre at 1081 1/2 Pape Avenue and we expect the official opening to take place this September.

The East York Hall of Fame was formed in 2016 with the goal to celebrate and recognize the best and brightest from East York.
