Many Canadians — and people around the world — will recognize Gurdeep Pandher. A resident of the Yukon, he became a viral sensation during the COVID-19 pandemic for posting videos of himself Bhangra dancing.
Now a social-media star (more than 120,000 followers on Facebook and 35,000 on TikTok), Pandher spent the summer driving a van across parts of Canada to spread his message of joy, love and positivity.
During a stop in Sault Ste. Marie, Pandher even dropped by Village Media headquarters for a chat — and of course, some dancing.
