Famous faces of the Post
In celebration of our 25th anniversary, we look back at the city’s celebs who have graced our covers
In any neighbourhood, you will find houses, businesses, roads and schools, but what makes a community come to life?
The people who live there. The residents of any locale are the defining component that allow a neighbourhood to thrive.
Over the last 25 years, Post City Magazines has been fortunate to have many famous local residents grace our covers and share the reason they call our areas home.
Whether you found out that you went to the same high school as Will Arnett or that you frequent the same shops as Nelly Furtado, we drew an important connection from their humble beginnings to their current fame.
We’ve profiled newscasters from Ann Rohmer to Wendy Mesley, Peter Kent and Lisa LaFlamme.
We’ve followed the successful athletic careers of local heroes such as Kurt Browning, Thornhill’s current tennis pro Milos Raonic and rising basketball star Andrew Wiggins.
As well, we’ve covered some of the biggest names in Hollywood — Howie Mandel, Shenae Grimes-Beech and Emmanuelle Chriqui — just as they were entering stardom.
Everyone from iconic Canadian musicians, such as Neil Young and Gordon Lightfoot, to important government officials, like Adrienne Clarkson, have appeared on a Post cover to show that our city truly never skips a beat.
Whether they have moved on from their Toronto roots or their work eventually landed them a home in the city and they simply never wanted to leave, these are our neighbours.
We share the same homes, roads and schools as they do, walk the same streets, and take part in the same community.
Most importantly, we all love Toronto and call it home.
