Oh, John Candy. You made us laugh so. And East Gwillimbury is all the richer knowing you were once part of us.
A 1982 Late Show with Letterman video has been located by EG Shines that showcases the late actor’s talent. The clip is also a special shout-out to Queensville, a place close to John Candy’s heart.
Pay close attention to the clip in which Queensville is mentioned (beginning at the 4:03 mark). John Candy, his wife Rosemary, and his children Christopher and Jennifer Candy enjoyed happy times in Queensville where they owned a 100-acre farm and often welcomed guests (including celebrity film director/screenwriter John Hughes) to their home.
