Kiefer Sutherland Unveils Tommy Douglas Statue In Saskatchewan
"Actor Kiefer Sutherland was on hand in Weyburn, Sask., Friday for the unveiling of a statue honouring his grandfather, Tommy Douglas.
Douglas, a former premier of Saskatchewan, is credited with introducing universal, publicly funded medical insurance in the province, a precursor to Canada's national health-care system. Sutherland, the son of actors Shirley Douglas and Donald Sutherland, participated as a representative of the family.
Despite a steady drizzle and chilling winds, the unveiling on Riverfront Boardwalk attracted hundreds of people — many eager for a glimpse of Sutherland."
