Marg Delahuntey, aka Mary Walsh, surprises Jim Watson

Mary Walsh.JPGThis was the scene earlier today on Sparks Street: Marg Delahunty, surprising Ottawa mayor Jim Watson as he introduced the 2014 Cracking up the Capital festival. Marg Delahunty is, of course, the alter ego of Canadian comedienne extraordinaire Mary Walsh.... known for her role on CBC's This Hour has 22 Minutes.  Walsh wasn't just in Ottawa to chat with our mayor.  She was also here to promote next year's festival - which is about laughter and raising funds for mental health programming.  Mary Walsh dropped by All in a Day's studios.
