      I had the pleasure of filming the Rick Mercer Toronto Zoo episode last year. The whole team are professional and fun. I actually suggested that they film at an 1812 re-enactment this Fall so I am very pleased they followed through. Look forward to it folks, it'll be a good one ! See you there .
