At the Daytime Emmys, Dr. Jill Biden and Justin Trudeau honour Alex Trebek

At the Daytime Emmy Awards on Friday,

At the Daytime Emmy Awards on Friday, former First Lady of the United States, Dr. Jill Biden, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pay acclaim gameshow presenter Alex Trebek. The acclaimed Jeopardy! host After long treatment with pancreatic cancer, he died in November of 2020 at the age of 80. The tribute was launched by the Canadian prime minister, who was joined by Robin Roberts, the anchor of Good Morning America, comedian Ken Jeong, and Dr. Jill Biden.

Quick wit of Alex Trebek and sparkling sense of humour captivated millions of people, but he never missed a chance to baffle players with questions about Canada,  added Trudeau.

He cared greatly about preservation and conserving our lands, just like so many other Canadians. He contributed 62 acres in Nichols Canyon because he recognised the importance of the environment, much as laughter, tolerance, and goodwill are to our health and well-being,  he said.

We’ll all miss huddled around the television to watch Alex, but his spirit of giving and caring will continue on,  he added. When I got the chance to speak with him a few years back, he told me how happy he was to be a Canadian. He stated, “I had to tell him that all Canadians are immensely proud that he is one of us as well.

Alex Trebek was warm and hilarious and so, so nice, Dr. Biden said of the late television icon. But what struck me the most was that, despite never having worked in a classroom, he was an educator. Alex made us feel as if learning was something that everyone could do. He made it lively, challenging, and fun. Who’d have anticipated that the simple tune of ‘Final Jeopardy’ would make our hearts beat faster?

He encouraged us to be more curious about the world see around, and he brought families together every evening to laugh, guess, and wrack our brains in order to keep up with the smartest competitors. Alex, thank you for teaching us, motivating us, and uniting us. She went on to say, We miss you.
