The Canadian Media Producers Association rolled out the red carpet on Jan. 29 at its Prime Time event to celebrate the premiere of Cardinal’s fourth and final season, a CTV crime show filmed in Sudbury, based off North Bay-native Giles Blunt’s series of novels. The books are set in Algonquin Bay, Mr. Blunt’s fictionalized version of his hometown.
