Canadian "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek recently completed what he hopes will be his last chemotherapy treatment, he told the Royal Canadian Geographical Society Monday afternoon as he helped open the group's new headquarters in Ottawa.

"That stuff really kicks the slats out of you," he told his audience. Trebek, 78, is the society's honorary president. He announced in March that he has advanced 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.

But Monday, clad in a blue suit and cracking jokes from a podium, he seemed energetic and strong.

Trebek said he was disappointed all the Canadian NHL teams had been eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs — before noting the country's pro-sports championship hopes are still very much alive.
