Other high-profile cameos during the show’s live-action run included former Gov. Gen. Adrienne Clarkson, hockey greats Darryl Sittler and Travis Moen, Olympic speedskater Cindy Klassen, and musicians Colin James, Jann Arden and the Tragically Hip.
“Home after a great couple of days in Saskatchewan. But I’ll be at @cornergas in Dog River very soon. Stay tuned,” Trudeau wrote, referring to his trip to the province last week where he announced a deal for closing coal-fired power plants as well as funding for a geothermal generating facility.
Trudeau previously appeared on the small screen in the 2007 CBC docudrama “The Great War.” He depicted Talbot Mercer Papineau, a soldier who died during the Battle of Passchendaele.
Butt, meanwhile, thanked Trudeau for continuing the tradition of doing a cameo in a version of the show, noting it was always fun.
