Leslie Nielsen was Canadian, born of a Welsh mother and a Danish father who was a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. I doubt that was a factor when he played a senior Mountie Officer in an episode of 'Due South' however, since Ingvard Nielsen used to beat his wife and children severely. I doubt he'd do the role to honor his father.....

Here's a couple of scenes from that 'Due South' episode which suggests that Lt. Frank Drebin may have had family ties north of the border.....

[Thanks to fellow "Iddiot" Richard Gordon for pointing out that first clip.....]
