Let's Tell Our Own Stories

"Tell Canadian Stories" was a national television advertising campaign underscoring the importance of Canadian content on television. The humourous spots feature a Hollywood director, played by Winnipeg-born comedian David Huband, making films about icons like Rocket Richard, John A. Macdonald, Bobby Orr and the Canadian North. The director of the spots is Mitch Gabourie and the writer is Aubrey Singer. Produced in 2003, "Tell Canadian Stories" is still as relevant today as when they aired nationwide on CBC, CTV, CHUM and on the big screen in Cineplex Odeon Theatres.
