We’re all mourning the death of actress Carrie Fisher, including some prominent Canadians, including the country’s leader. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is known to be a big fan of “Star Wars” — honoured the iconic American actor by tweeting:
We’ll never forget you, Carrie. May the Force be with you always.— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) December 27, 2016
Over the last couple years, Trudeau has invited patients from the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario to join him for advance private screenings of The Force Awakens and Rogue One.
Others included Canadian actors Dan Aykroyd and William Shatner.
I'm deeply saddened to learn of the death of Carrie Fisher. I will miss our banterings. A wonderful talent & light has been extinguished.— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) December 27, 2016
"Our beautiful brilliant funny wise kind and generous Blues Sister -so ironic - Xmas was Carrie's favorite thing next to babies."— Dan Aykroyd (@dan_aykroyd) December 27, 2016
