Toronto Mayor John Tory has declared October 31 as “John Candy Day.” “This marks what would have been John’s 70th birthday as he was born on October 31, 1950. Mr. Candy’s contributions to the Canadian entertainment industry have made him one of Canada’s greatest and funniest character actors,” a news release reads. Candy’s career spanned for more than two decades, with much of that time being spent at Toronto’s Second City as a member of the sketch group who would go on to make SCTV. “Candy’s star grew brighter in Hollywood where he often played charming and memorable characters,” the release continues.
