In 2011, she reprised the role of Marg Delahunty, conducting the now infamous ambush interview of Toronto Mayor Rob Ford at his home. Mary Walsh is the recipient of 25 Gemini Awards, the Order of Canada award, and in 2012 she received a Governor General’s Performing Arts Awards for Lifetime Artistic Achievement.
