Great White North 40 Years later


A life-sized sculpture of Bob & Doug McKenzie just magically appeared last week in downtown Edmonton. Recently sculptor Ritchie Velthuis spoke with CKUA’s Grant Stovel and shared to process of bringing this public installation of beloved SCTV hosers to life.

“I’m a farm kid, a north-end boy, so I totally identify with these characters. Plaid shirts, blue jeans, winter coat and a toque were all that you saw on the streets in the late 70’s early 80’s. They’re definitely inspiring and very identifiable for people.”
