Here's who will be inducted during the Dec. 19 ceremony.
- Louise Arbour, a former Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada,

Elena Nacanther, who has been canvassing the Internet for several years to get Frid on the walk of fame. "But, since we started our campaign four years ago, we have built momentum and got him on the list for Cineplex Legends Award Nominees, and we will continue this campaign until we accomplish our goal of getting this loyal Canadian son the honor he truly deserves."
"I would say that Jonathan Frid will be recognized, it's a matter of time," said Robbins. "There are many deserving Canadians and Jonathan is one of them. Canada's Walk Of Fame has noticed him and they have told me they realize that he his is a 'Great Canadian.' Persistence is the key here."
Despite the setback, Nacanther said the campaign plans to keep moving forward.
"We would ask everyone to continue nominating Jonathan every day at www.canadaswalkoffame.com/nominate, and together we will celebrate his induction into CWOF in the very near future," she said.
