South Fork Bridge Time Traveller Photo This photo, taken in Canada in 1941, has been the cause of considerable speculation. It was taken at a public ceremony in British Columbia to celebrate the reopening of the South Fork Bridge. Look at the individual with the clothing that seems to be from an era in the future. He is wearing what looks like modern sunglasses and a printed t-shirt--not items of clothing one would see in 1941.

Archie Moore Vs James J Parker Legendary world light heavyweight champion Archie Moore is seen outclassing his overmatched opponent, Canada's James J. Parker, in this brief clip from 1956. This isn't really a significant boxing match. It's personally interesting to me, though, because the fight took place in Toronto and my grandfather is in the crowd somewhere!

1978 NHL Playoff Game Ah, the late 1970s when men were men and hockey was entertaining! (Look at how many players didn't wear helmets!) This is a ten-minute clip of a Stanley Cup semifinal game from May 11, 1978 with the Boston Bruins hosting the Philadelphia Flyers at old Boston Garden. Bob Cole of Hockey Night in Canada provides the play-by-play description. The Bruins won the game 6-3 and took the series four games to one.

A Pittance of Time November 11 is Remembrance Day in Canada. It is the anniversary of the date in 1918 when the Armistice was signed that ended the First World War. It is a solemn occasion. It is customary for Canadians to pause for two minutes at 11 a.m. to remember those who died in the two world wars, in Korea, and in later conflicts. This video is based on a true incident observed by singer/songwriter Terry Kelly on November 11, 1999. He was in a Nova Scotia drug store that morning. At 11 a.m. everyone in the store paused for two minutes of silence--except for one oblivious man who had a young daughter with him. Kelly channelled his anger into this touching song, A Pittance of Time.

First World War Casualty Laid To Rest Canada's most famous First World War battle occurred at a French salient known as Vimy Ridge. Heavily defended by veteran German troops, the Canadians brilliantly took the ridge on Easter Sunday, 1917. Some 3,500 Canadians were killed in the action. One's remains were found a few years ago, identified through DNA, and laid to rest in 2007.

Victoria Cross Winner Joseph Kaeble The Victoria Cross is the most difficult military medal in the world to attain. To be considered for a VC, one has to be a member of a British Commonwealth country's armed forces and perform an exceptionally brave feat in the face of the enemy. Some of the heroics of Canada's 94 VC winners almost defy belief. Consider how 26-year-old Corporal Joseph Kaeble won his VC.

The Performer This is one of my favorite vignettes from Canada's National Film Board--The Performer. (The sound is slightly out of synch with the picture. Sorry!)

It was a postgame chat following an 8-5 Edmonton Oilers' victory in Toronto over the Maple Leafs on March 29, 1980. Gretzky had two goals and four assists in his team's victory. Gretzky displays experience and maturity beyond his years in answering Hodge's questions.

Too Bad  Doug and the Slugs This song was used as the theme for the Norm MacDonald comedy The Norm Show, a 1999-2001 sitcom. For us up here in Canada, it was a big hit in 1980. Singer Doug Bennett passed away in 2004. Catchy tune. Hope you like it!
