Once referred to as “a poor man’s Ann-Margret,” Caroline Connolly is more widely lesser-known as the first Mayor of Value Village. In other incarnations, when not annoying people (she claims ‘professionally’) from behind the camera’s lens, she’s entertaining them from the business end of a microphone as the singer and songwriter in Calgary’s favourite party band, The Lovebullies. She lives in Cochrane, AB, where her kids find her marginally amusing but the cats generally ignore her.

You’ll want to collect them all!
