Reader's Choice logo 

Updated November 19th to add: 
 - Mysterion and Steffi Kay have accepted their nomination.



The Canada's Magic "2019 Readers' Choice Inspirational Canadian Magician of the Year" award nominations are now open.

You may nominate living Canadian Magician(s) of your choosing by leaving their name along with a short note about how they inspired you in 2019, in the comments below.  (Or you may email your nomination.)

Nominations will be accepted up until 11:59PM EST on Friday November the 29th.  We will contact the nominees via email and give them one week to accept or decline their nomination.  The full list of nominations will be published and voting will commence in December.  (Canada's Magic is not eligible for the award, nor will it be participating in the nomination or voting process.) 

This is a "bragging rights" only contest.  There is no cash value for this award.

Individuals and groups can be nominated.

We look forward to seeing your nominations!

In the spirit of celebrating all Canadian magicians, last year's winners of the Readers' Choice award (Jeff Christensen) or the Editor's Choice award (Mike Segal) are not eligible for nomination in 2019.

Welcoming a new Friend: Doug Hunt

Please join me in welcoming our newest friend, Doug Hunt!

Based out of Brantford, Doug has been a long-time reader of the blog. I first met Doug at one of the first CAM conventions.  You may know him as the holder of multiple Guinness World Records!
2002-09-14 - Doug took 29 independent steps on stilts made of carbon fibre, measuring 50 feet 9 inches in length and weighing a combined 137 pounds. [Records for heaviest stilts and for tallest stilts mastered.]  This record setting event raised over $75,000 for Participation House.

2008-05-15 - Doug Hunt set his 3rd Guinness World Record: He led 625 people (mostly students from North Park Collegiate High School in Brantford, ON) all on stilts simultaneously 100m. [Record for most people simultaneously walking on stilts.  (This was recognized by "Ripley's Believe It or Not" with a cartoon of Doug!  It is also listed in the "Book of Alternative Records."]

Doug received the 2002 Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal and the 2012 Queen's Diamond Jubilee Medal, the 2014 Brantford Kiwanis Walter Zeller Fellowship Award, the 2017 Canada & Ontario 150 coin, and the 2018 Brant Community Foundation Kindness Award!

Thank you Doug, for befriending Canada's Magic

Welcoming a new Friend: Jason Maiuri

Please join me in welcoming our newest friend, Jason Maiuri!

Based out of Niagara Falls, Jason has been a long-time reader of the blog. Jason's experience includes touring with Claude Haggerty Magic, working with Frederic Clement, working as a scenic carpenter and stage electrician at the Shaw Festival, and working for Greg Frewin.

Jason is developing a "Magic is Medicine" act to present to dialysis patients as a way to help pass the time during their long four hour treatments.  (This is a project close to the heart for Jason as he lives with kidney disease and is dependent upon hemodialysis.)

He is very grateful for his mentoring from Ken McCreedy.
