Among others, actor Keanu Reeves, who is recently starring in the Matrix sequel set to release later this year, will be one of this year's inductees to Canada's Walk of Fame.
He will enter alongside actor Graham Greene, retired Lt.-Gen. Romeo Dallaire, musician Bruce Cockburn, singer-songwriter Jully Black, late blues artist Salome Bey, wrestling star Bret (The Hitman) Hart and decathlete Damian Warner.
Ten Canadians are chosen each year. The above will be joined by Cargojet CEO Ajay Virmani and the group of University of Toronto scientists who discovered insulin: Frederick Banting, Charles Best, John Macleod and James Collip. Canada's Walk of Fame celebrates Canadian excellence and achievement in the areas of arts and entertainment; entrepreneurship and philanthropy; humanitarianism; science, technology and innovation; and sports and athletics.
The gala for this year's celebration will occur in December.
