He’s also enjoyed popular and coast-to-coast critical acclaim for five 60-minute specials for CBC TV: The Road Between My Ears, filmed in Toronto; Quest For The West, filmed in Calgary; West Coast Wild, filmed in Victoria, Back Home, filmed in Halifax and Manitoba Bound, filmed in Winnipeg. Ron has also enjoyed great success with the hit CBC comedy, The Ron James Show.
