Put your finger on the excitement and intrigue generated by Canadian politics and most of the time you’ll be lucky to find a faint pulse. That’s because, as Canuck singer and former Zoomer cover person Jann Arden tweeted, “Canadian politics- yawn … NO charisma- no personality- no WOW factor.”
Sure, we should be thrilled that the Donald Trumps of the world stay far away from Parliament Hill, but sometimes a little celebrity involvement can spice up the dullness of political posturing and election campaign hyperbole.
From rock stars to literary giants and Hollywood heavyweights, home-grown celebs and those from abroad have weighed in on Canadian politics and elections over the years.
We’ve complied a list of 10 of them who’ve either endorsed, or shown support for, the federal Liberals, Conservatives, NDP and Green Party over the years.
