Dan Levy Enrolls In Free Online Indigenous Course By U Of A
Dan Levy would love to be your classmate.
The former “Schitt’s Creek” actor is heading back to school this September to take a free online course on Indigenous history and issues, offered by the Faculty of Native Studies at the University of Alberta.
