Party Pages: Steven Page performs and David Miller makes friends with a bear at WWF Canada’s annual gala

Party Pages: Panda Ball 2013

While no actual furry animals attended the World Wildlife Fund’s Panda Ball at the Four Seasons on Friday night, there was a human-sized plush bear tottering about the pre-dinner cocktail to pose with guests. (Even former mayor David Miller cuddled up to the night’s mascot.) Elsewhere, the Barenaked Ladies’ Steven Page charmed Adrienne Clarkson and her husband, writer John Ralston Saul, while special guest Chris Hadfield revealed that the popularity of that “Space Oddity” cover has its drawbacks. “You become an engineer, a tactical fighter-pilot, and an astronaut, but nobody says anything,” he told us, “but you sing one song, and suddenly, that’s all everybody talks to you about.” The message: he’s much more than a one-David Bowie-hit wonder.
