Shades of six degrees: I just found out that Dalton McGuinty, current Ontario Premier, came from my alma mater, McMaster University. In an interview with the McMaster alumni magazine, it turns out he lived in a student house on the exact same street in Westdale I co-habitated in for two years, Hollywood. Heck, we may have had rented the same house.
P.S. Speaking of minor celebrities, yes, I did shake the hand of Preston Manning on Parliament Hill during Canada Day, 2000. I also saw Jacksoul and the Canadian Cheerleading Team. Couldn’t get close to Jean Chretien, though.
