Last night we were invited to the Ottawa premier of Corner Gas: The Movie. Creator of the show Brent Butt was there with some of the other cast members, Prime Minister Harper's wife Laureen, the Honourable Shelley Glover, Minister of Heritage and other VIPs. With the red carpet, screening and reception it was looking a bit like Hollywood here in the Nations capital region. Here are some of my favourite photos from the evening and I must say I really enjoyed the movie. It really is refreshing to see our stories being told with Canadian talent and in our own way. When asked whether he could have imagined the success of Corner Gas, Brent Butt said that he didn't think anyone was going to watch it so they didn't have an agenda but just did what they thought was really good. :)
