George's trip to New York and Whistler Film Festival

George has been quite busy in the last six days. It began with a trip to New York with two senior proudcers of George Stroumboulopoulos TonightDan Hughes and Catherine Stockhausen.


They left Billy Bishop airport to speak with Michael J. Fox and Dolly Parton for the Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve shows. While in New York, George had the opportunity to hang with Michael and his dog, Cooper, as they spoke about Michael's charitable organization Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.


You can learn more about the organization and their campaign, "Tell Us Your Story" where people are encouraged to share how Parkinson's has affected them and their loved one on their facebook app. Each like and share will earn a $5 donation to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.

George then had a brief stop in Toronto to tape Thursday's show before flying out to Vancouver for the Whistler Film Festival and Artists for Peace and Justice. George had a chance to sit down with Daniel Radcliffe to discuss Radcliffe's upcoming three films and return to London's West End Stage next year.

George also had the chance to talk with other activists such as James Cromwell while hosting a reception for Artists for Peace and Justice.

George is now back in Toronto ready to tape more shows before he goes back to Vancouver for the CBC Open House and Food Bank Day on December 7, 2012.
