A recent story in the Vancouver Sun explains that the most recent manifestation of the comic book hero, Captain Canuck, is a Surrey British Columbia RCMP officer named David Semple.  Captain Canuck, a complicated character that has appeared in at least two other manifestations since his original introduction in 1975, is the creation of Richard Comely of Cambridge, Ontario.

For anyone else who thinks it is a clever idea, Mr. Comely has already registered CAPTAIN CANUCK as a trademark, has registered the domain name captaincanuck.com and has optioned the film rights.
