In this week’s Bright Spot, we are sharing how you can own a piece of ‘Schitt’s Creek,’ a new documentary has been released about Shawn Mendes on Netflix, Canadian Grammy nods, and a new four-legged member has been added to Peel Region’s police force.

You can buy the Rosebud Motel from Schitt’s Creek

The listing is officially out — so if you have $2-million — the Rosebud Motel from Schitt’s Creek is yours!

We already knew the famous motel in Hockley Valley, just outside of Orangeville, would be up for sale, we just didn’t know when it would officially be up for grabs.

It has 10 units, a two-storey Manager’s Office, sits on 6.7 acres, and backs onto a river.

Take the tour for yourself!
