Those amiable beavers from the Bell Canada Commercials are campaigning for a new holiday!

Greetings,

It's funny. Since the Torino Olympic Games wrapped up, I haven't seen any more television commercials for Bell Canada's Frank and Gordon characters.

During the Olympic Games, these two somewhat lovable beavers were the heart, soul, and bore the closest resemblance to Canada's official yet un-official mascots for the Torino Games. With voice talents of Norm MacDonald and Ken Campbell, the twosome marketed Bell Canada's services in tandem with the Olympics, producing witty commentary and buzz for all things Canadian.

What are Frank and Gordon up to these days? Well, they're still plugging away with their National Beaver Day proposal, a prospective national holiday that would recognize the significance of beavers and celebrate their uniquely Canadian qualities. They are on the nickel, after all ($0.05)!

To quote, "Beavers are industrious, reliable, naturally good-looking, and completely Canadian."

We really should take a day to appreciate our national icons and another holiday wouldn't hurt - it would even generate a new avenue for voice-overs!

Cheers,

Stephanie
