Kids on the Walk...

The Kids were honored with a star on the Canadian Walk of Fame Saturday, September 6. The guys were honored along with Michael J. Fox, James Cameron, Steve Nash, k.d. lang and Frances Bay. During the induction, Mark discussed Ottawa's recent multi-million dollar cuts to arts funding.

...But fellow inductee Mark McKinney, who was honoured alongside the four other members of their sketch comedy troupe Kids in the Hall, called the Conservative cuts "really dumb."

"Arts are profit-making and popular and they present our country worldwide," he said, on the eve of a federal election call. "And they help us in a difficult situation, being north of the United States, to establish a national identity and a national tone to the kinds of shows we produce - Kids in the Hall being one.
