Dan Aykroyd nar­rates The World With­out Canada

The Hamilton Spectator - - A&E -

Cana­dian com­edy star Dan Aykroyd will nar­rate His­tory’s new orig­i­nal doc­u­men­tary se­ries “The World With­out Canada.” The three-part pro­gram will air May 31, June 1 and June 2 on His­tory. It looks at Canada’s in­flu­ence and in­no­va­tions by imag­in­ing a mod­ern world with­out this coun­try. CGI graph­ics il­lus­trate the global rip­ple ef­fect that would oc­cur if Canada’s con­tri­bu­tions failed to ex­ist. Cana­dian ex­perts fea­tured in the show in­clude data sci­en­tist and fu­tur­ist Juli­ette Pow­ell, sci-fi au­thor Robert J. Sawyer, and his­to­rian David O’Keefe. The se­ries fo­cuses on Canada’s nat­u­ral re­sources, tech­no­log­i­cal and med­i­cal break­throughs, and hu­man­i­tar­ian ef­forts. “Cana­di­ans are gen­er­ally hum­ble about the gamechang­ing con­tri­bu­tions and ex­tra­or­di­nary achieve­ments to hu­mankind’s ad­vance­ments we’ve made both here and around the world,” said Aykroyd, who was born in Ot­tawa. “I’m proud to be part of this en­ter­tain­ing and sus­pense­ful project that un­apolo­get­i­cally show­cases these ac­com­plish­ments through an eye-open­ing lens where Canada doesn’t ex­ist.”
