Keyano Theatre and CBS Construction presents Affair for the Arts featuring Rick Mercer - A Nation Worth Ranting About

Rick Mercer headlines Keyano Theatre & Arts Centre's 5th annual fundraiser - The Affair for the Arts, presented by CBS Construction. The winner of over 25 Gemini Awards and the star of one of CBC television's most popular weekly programs, RIck Mercer will deliver a keynote called "A Nation Worth Ranting About".
A Nation Worth Ranting About

Few people know Canada like Rick Mercer knows Canada. Unashamedly proud, fiercely skeptical, and endlessly entertaining, Mercer knows the people, the culture, the passions, and the heartaches. He knows Canada is a country worth laughing about, cheering about, and occasionally getting angry about - usually around the time of a federal election. In this new keynote, Mercer pokes and prods at our institutions. He reveals hypocrisy at the highest reaches of power. And he draws our attention to hardworking, unsung heroes. In the process, he illuminates everything that's great and irreverent about Canada. Mercer's unrivaled genius is his ability to make you laugh at, question, think about, and most of all, appreciate this glorious country we all share.
The evening begins with a wine tasting at 6 pm presented by the Fort McMurray Opimian Society, and exclusive silent auction. You'll also enjoy music from incredible emerging Alberta artists. A post-performance party caps off the evening with delightful desserts, specialty coffees and exotic liqueurs. The entire evening will be catered by the Sawridge Inn and Conference Centre.
