Great White North – Key Magical Behaviours

Cast Members should be like Canadians. Yes, that is an odd statement, but I want you to think about that statement for a little bit.  When you think of Canadians, a few stereotypes have to come to mind: *Canadians are friendly *Canadians are non-confrontational *Canadians are good at what they …
