Canadian hosers Bob and Doug McKenzie now have their own statue in Canada
Canadian hosers Bob and Doug McKenzie officially have their own statue in Canada after eight years of citizens petitioning for it, and honestly, it's the good news that all of us need right now.
Now, the iconic McKenzie duo are being commemorated with a bronze state in Edmonton's ICE district, where locals can go snap a picture or two with the brothers (while maintaining social distancing, of course).
The SCTV Monument Society has graciously donated the Bob and Doug McKenzie monument honouring The Great White North duo and recognizing the great legacy of SCTV and ITV in #YEG. More details on formal unveiling to come at a later date https://t.co/huZscN9SR9— ICE District (@IceDistrict) March 25, 2020
Speaking with Avenue, Rick Moranis said that he is "truly honoured" to have the statue realized.
"It’s hard to believe it was 40 years ago that we recorded the very first episode of SCTV’s The Great White North," Moranis said. "Despite the time that has passed, we hold dear the memories of working with the people of Edmonton."
"We look forward to returning very soon to see our old friends who worked on the show and take a look at our new bronze brothers in the flesh."
Naturally, Canadians are pretty excited by the news.

Because, really, the McKenzie brothers are a Canadian institution.
Although one Canadian couldn't resist having just a little fun with the statue, considering that it's been released during a worldwide pandemic.
Dave Thomas has confirmed that both actors will be in Edmonton to see the Bob and Doug McKenzie statue in person once it's safe to do so.
