Métis activist and retired senator Thelma Chalifoux has died.

Chalifoux's daughter, Debbie Coulter, says her mother passed away Friday evening at a care home in St. Albert, near Edmonton, and had been in declining health for some years. She was 88.

Chalifoux was appointed to the upper chamber in 1997 and served until she retired at age 75 in 2004.

Sir Creep is Métis fwiw.

What if Alex Trebek died, or Keanu Reeves, or Brendan Fraser?

Oh shit of course yeah. Mike Smith (guy who plays Bubbles) made the news somewhat recently (a few years ago?) about verbal/physical abuse allegations. Also he's a classic character in the show so say if he does come down with cancer or something, I won't be suprised to see a BBC obit or something.

Looks fucking terrible now, But honestly not /that/ much of a name. Keanu Reeves would be a suprise though. Don't really know how i'm supposed to put their importance to Canadian culture in words but for movie actors in general, oh yeah they'd be big.

Well-known Canadian author and former politician James Laxer died on Feb. 23, his family confirmed on social media. He was 76.

He passed away of natural causes in Paris, his son Michael wrote on Facebook.

"This shocking and totally unexpected news has been devastating for our family and has not sunk in yet," the post said.

Laxer was one of the founders of the Waffle, a left-wing group of the federal NDP party in the late 1960s and early 70s.

If it's alright with the mods, I started this thread, for famous Canadians, mostly for the ones that are only famous in Canada, or have little exposure to the rest of the world, such as Red Green, or Mike MacDonald, or Jason Rouse, etc. But other famous Canadians can be mentioned in here, too.

Mike MacDonald is dead according to this:
