Sook-Yin Lee (née en 1966 à Vancouver, en Colombie-Britannique), est une actrice, chanteuse et animatrice de radio canadienne.

Biographie

Lee commence sa carrière comme chanteuse au sein de Bob's Your Uncle, un groupe de rock alternatif dans les années 1990 ; elle aime à incorporer souvent des techniques d'Art performance. Lorsque le groupe se sépare, Lee continue une carrière musicale en solo, publie plusieurs albums et joue au théâtre, dans des films et à la télévision. Elle est actuellement chanteuse du groupe Slan.

En 1995, Lee devient vidéo jockey pour MuchMusic. Elle se fait connaître comme animatrice de l'émission de musique alternative de MuchMusic, The Wedge.

Après six années, en 2001, elle quitte MuchMusic. L'année suivante, elle est choisie pour animer le magazine de pop culture du samedi après-midi sur CBC Radio One, Definitely Not the Opera.

En 2003, elle devient le centre d'une polémique quand CBC menace de la licencier parce qu'elle a accepté de jouer dans Shortbus, un film de John Cameron Mitchell, dans lequel elle a des relations sexuelles non simulées. Après que le public et des célébrités comme Francis Ford Coppola, Michael Stipe et Yoko Ono prennent position pour Lee, la CBC fait machine arrière et le film sort finalement en salles en 2006.

À l'automne 2004, elle produit et anime un documentaire en faveur de Terry Fox dans le cadre de la série télévisée de CBC The Greatest Canadian.

Mr. Toronto starts his journey in Hamilton after he sees a billboard boasting "Toronto Sucks" as an advertisement campaign. He finds out that some fans of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats put on bags over their heads because of the shame of losing to Toronto during the Labour Day CFL game every year. He decides to go around Canada on a fake "Toronto Appreciation Day" tour. Mr. Toronto visits St. John's and Halifax, where Atlantic Canadians spit on his "Toronto Appreciation Day" banner. Then he travels to Montreal where local comedy troupe The Dancing Cock Brothers sing "Goodbye Toronto, Bonjour Montreal" and where his Toronto work ethic influences the city to change the light bulbs on the giant cross atop Mount Royal. Next, he skips the Prairies (because “every Torontonian does”), and lands in Calgary and Vancouver, where he learns that resentment towards Toronto runs very deep. During the 2006 NHL Stanley Cup Finals, he visits Edmonton where he risks his life by wearing a faux Wayne Gretzky Toronto Maple Leafs jersey during the Edmonton Oilers’ Stanley Cup run.
