Famous People Also Know Collingwood and Area is “Some Great Place To Live”

richard-rohmerI was reading a column in the local paper written by Canadas most decorated citizen,  Richard Rohmer.   He does a wonderful job of summarizing why Collingwood is THE finest community perhaps in all of Ontario.  Please read it, it gives a great snapshot of what’s happening in our fair town.D053613017.JPG

Anyway, I then got thinking about the number of famous people who live or have lived in South Georgian Bay.  People like hockey legend  Jason Arnott, and  Susan Clark from the TV show,  WebsterWe sadly just lost Opera Singer and Actor, Jan Rubes.   For barbara-underhillBetter or For Worse cartoonist,  Lynn Johnston was born here.  Add to the list, world figure skating champion and motivational speaker, Barbara Underhill and, musician and Juno winner Kim Mitchell  (Some time I’ll have to tell you the story about walking in on him by accident).  Of course we are also home to now famous, Canadian Idol finalist Drew Wright and Juno nominees, Midway State.kim-mitchell

There are countless other musicians, celebrities, sports figures, business tycoons, senators and politicians who call South Georgian Bay their home or second home. You’d be stunned by some of the world figures who are currently looking for property in the area.   I think Mr. Rohmer has it right when he says, “This is some great place to live.”
