In light of recent events related to the mayor of Toronto – I’m sick of seeing his name published everywhere, so I’ll forgo it – it makes me sad to see the bad wrap the city itself is garnering. The kings of late night have used the incident to fuel a few cheap jabs during their opening monologues (Canadians don’t pronounce the second “T” in Toronto, by the way).
It’s a busy time for Keegan Connor Tracy, the Vancouver-based stunner who’s making moves on the big and small screens playing a variety of compelling characters. I had the opportunity to chat with her before she jets off to London for Comic Con. Here’s what we learned about this dynamic — and refreshingly wry-witted — actress.
Grandparents are the best. They’re your allies when you think your parents are being difficult or unjust. They spoil you, cheer you on and celebrate each milestone. When you slip up they remind you that your parents did the exact same thing when they were your age. They proudly display photos of you through every awkward stage of adolescence, maintaining that they thought you looked beautiful every step of the way.

Stories seep into it’s fibers, unfolding over cocktails in a dimly lit lobby bar among friends or new acquaintances.
It’s not the first time Vancouver’s Darcy Michael has graced the pages of UCV.com. We first started following his career in his early days doing stand-up in dingy cafes and half-empty bars. Today, Darcy is headlining comedy festivals across Canada, is a regular on CBC Radio’s The Debaters and is about to start filming for his first starring role in a sitcom.
So why am I posting a photo diary 6 months after our wedding? Many of our friends and family have asked to see our photos, so naturally I considered uploading an album to Facebook.
