Fa­mous faces of the Post

In cel­e­bra­tion of our 25th an­niver­sary, we look back at the city’s celebs who have graced our cov­ers

Richmond Hill Post - - Looking Back - by Nikki Gill

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.
