Terry Fox Marathon of Hope 1980 Terry Fox was arguably the most heroic figure in Canadian history. On April 12, 1980, the 21-year-old Fox, who had lost his right leg to cancer three years earlier, began a mind-boggling cross-Canada run from Newfoundland to British Columbia with the aid of a prosthesis to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society. For the next four months Fox averaged 25 miles per day as Canada became captivated by his exploits. Unfortunately, Fox had to abandon his 'Marathon of Hope' near Thunder Bay, Ontario on September 1 because the cancer had resurfaced in his lungs. Fox had run 3,339 miles! He died nine months later. This nine-minute feature was produced by ESPN in 2005.

Swastika Name Controversy There is a Canadian town (located in northern Ontario) that bears the odd name of Swastika. Founded in 1904, it began as a mining community. No one is quite sure about the origin of the town's name. When Naziism was on the rise in the 1930s, the government of Ontario forced the 600 people of Swastika to accept Winston as a new name for the town. The people rebelled, tore down the Winston sign on the highway, and replaced it with another Swistika sign that carried the message: 'To hell with Hitler. We had the name first.'

1905 Dawson City Nuggets One of the great sports stories of the twentieth century was the improbable challenge for the Stanley Cup made by the Dawson City Nuggets back in 1905. The Cup was still a challenge trophy at the time, and somehow a group of recreational hockey players from the distant Yukon Territory was granted permission by the Cup's trustees to play the powerful Ottawa Silver Seven for Lord Stanley's hardware in 1905. Now all they had to do was travel 4,400 miles to Ottawa for the best-of three series. The Nuggets made their way to the Canadian capital by bicycle, dog sled, boat, railroad, and on foot. They arrived in Ottawa exhausted just one day before the first game was scheduled. They promptly lost 9-2. The next game was even worse. The defending champs from Ottawa won 23-2. Frank McGee notched 14 goals for the winners.

TVs Worst Sitcom The Trouble With Tracy Canadian television has been responsible for some of the worst sitcoms ever. The nadir is probably The Trouble With Tracy. To satisfy new Canadian content requirements, there were 130 episodes produced for CTV during the 1970-71 season. That's right, 130! It was a daily sitcom set in New York City. Because the episodes came off the production line so quickly and CTV was cash-strapped, quality control was minimal. Flubbed lines often stayed in the shows because retakes were too expensive. Rumor has it that all the master tapes have been destroyed. Here are the opening credits that some masochist recorded.

Niagara Falls Dewatered - 1969 From June to November 1969, the American portion of Niagara Falls had its water flow from the Niagara River diverted to Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side. It was the work of the US Army Corps of Engineers. The reason for the drastic measure was to scientifically study the falls for critical erosion damage. At the time there was a great fear that steady erosion was irretrievably affecting the falls. If the falls eroded to the point where they were not spectacular, the lucrative local tourism industry would suffer badly. The only way to know for sure if the falls were threatened was to examine the limestone precipice without any water present. Accordingly the engineers deftly dumped tons of landfill to block the American side of the falls. The Niagara River's typical discharge of 60,000 gallons of water per minute was reduced to just a small trickle. It was determined that natural erosion was not a threat at the time, but the engineers did use the opportunity to install sensors to alert them to any future erosion issues. Interestingly 1969 produced the greatest tourism year ever at Niagara Falls because people were drawn to the region to view the strangely barren waterfall.
