Watch CBC’s award-winning comedy ‘Still Standing’ featuring Omemee on August 23
The episode was filmed at Thanksgiving last year in Omemee and features local residents with comedian Jonny Harris. Harris has been taking a journey across Canada to explore small towns and to meet the people who remain fiercely proud to call these towns home. By immersing himself in the adventure of their everyday lives, Jonny comes to understand their passion for these places.
“The airing of this show is a delight to our small town. It will put Omemee on the national screen and will tell the stories of some of our long-time residents. Tune in and see why we love Omemee!” remarks Councillor Mary Ann Martin.
