Saskatchewan native gets to play Rob Ford in musical | Estevan Mercury

Other Published Work

Regina-based actor/comedian Sheldon Bergstrom recently obtained the role of Toronto mayor Rob Ford in the musical comedy called Rob Ford The Musical: The Birth of a Ford Nation, and much like the media frenzy that has surrounded the infamous mayor over the past year, the 42-year-old actor finds himself in a similar situation.

I interviewed Bergstrom, who talked a lot about his time in Estevan and the numerous performances he had at the Souris Valley Theatre in town.

Toronto citizens need a place to vocalize concerns

Humber Et Cetera newspaper, Other Published Work

This is an op-ed I wrote for our campus newspaper. I forgot it was already posted on the paper’s website last week, which is why I’m only posting it now.

I wrote about how the people of Toronto could still use an outlet like the one Speaker’s Corner offered the city several years ago. The show, which ran from 1989 to 2008, was a very unique concept that allowed anyone with a dollar to enter a booth, and sing, rant, do whatever they wanted for two minutes. The show’s crew back at the station would then compile the most interesting pieces into a 30-minute show.
