He is one of Canada’s premier multi-media personalities. Already a Juno Award winning recording artist and Gemini Award nominated actor, Wes is also the author of the critically-acclaimed book, Stick To Your Vision.

He continues to support several charitable organizations such as War Child, Save The Children, Covenant House, Special Olympics, Battered Women’s Support Services (BWSS), and TheAfrican AIDS Society.
