  • OTTAWA — Canadian “Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek will be in Ottawa later today for the official opening of the new headquarters of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society.

    The Emmy-Award-winning host of the popular TV game show announced in March that he’s battling Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

    In a TV interview with CBS Sunday Morning that aired on the weekend, Trebek says he’s continued taping Jeopardy! despite dealing with excruciating stomach cramps that have, at times, left him writhing and crying in pain.

    Trebek is honorary president of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, which aims to encourage the appreciation of Canada’s natural, cultural and social heritage.

    The Sudbury, Ont., native has a long connection with Canada’s capital city, where he studied philosophy at the University of Ottawa.

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will also participate in the event, in a building by the Ottawa River that was first built as a museum but never attracted very many visitors.
