Brampton Centennial HS School Shooting - 1975 The first school shooting in Canada in 73 years occurred on Wednesday, May 28, 1975 at Centennial High School in Brampton, Ontario. Just before noon, 16-year-old Michael Slobodian walked onto the campus with two high-powered hunting rifles and at least two ammunition belts. He killed John Slinger, a 17-year-old student, and Margaret Wright, a teacher in the English and art departments. Slobodian wounded 13 others before taking his own life with one of the firearms. “It was a beautiful spring day,” recalled Lorna (Matthews) McClusky, a Grade 10 student at the time. She walked into a hallway and heard what sounded like fire crackers. Then a girl who had been grazed by a bullet encountered her and yelled, “There’s someone shooting at people out there!” She and others quickly retreated to a nearby classroom. They remained there, hidden, until police gave the all clear to leave. She still remembers hearing wounded students moaning and calling out for help. That morning, 14-year-old Pam (Read) Hand was headed to her locker across from the first-floor boys' washroom. In one of those washroom stalls, Slobodian was loading his rifles to begin his deadly shooting spree. Hand remembers stopping in the cafeteria just long enough to greet a friend and take a bite of her donut. Meanwhile, in that washroom across from room 112, Slobodian had already fatally shot Slinger. The young victim managed to stagger into the hallway, where he collapsed and died. Nineteen-year-old Michael Gibeault was also in the washroom at the time. He was shot three times in the stomach and once in the arm at close range. He was able to stumble out before collapsing. Critically wounded, he would survive. Slobodian then opened fire on another boy as he made his way into the hallway, firing randomly at students in that section of the building. He walked around the corner to an art room, where he shot Mrs. Wright and another student. A note police found in his home indicated Slobodian planned to kill Wright, science teacher Ross Bronson, and anyone who got in his way. It is unclear what the teachers had done to trigger such hostility. The school was reopened shortly afterwards and the students were urged not to dwell on the tragedy. According to a news report on the 37th anniversary of the shooting, a movement is afoot to erect a permanent memorial to the two victims killed by Slobodian.

Youve Got Mail - Final Scene Ah, nothing beats a happy ending. This is the final scene of the 1998 Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan romantic film You've Got Mail. It's a modernized remake of a 1940 Jimmy Stewart-Margaret Sullivan film, The Shop Around The Corner, in which the lovers were pen pals. Set at a time when email was a novelty, Joe Fox (Hanks) and Kathleen Kelly (Ryan) begin a romance over the Internet without meeting one another. Complicating matters is that Fox's enormous bookstore chain is slowly pushing the small, beloved, family-owned bookstore founded by Kelly's late mother out of business. They despise each other, of course. An arranged meeting falls apart when Fox, who goes by the handle NY152, realizes his Internet love, whom he knows as Shopgirl, is Kelly. He does not divulge his identity to her, but the two slowly become dear friends once Kelly's shop is forced to close its doors. Fox sneakily and lovingly puts Kelly through the wringer before arranging another meeting at a New York City park. The final scene begins with Kelly awaiting the arrival of NY152 and realizing her Internet sweetheart is Fox.

National Lampoon 1970 -1998 National Lampoon was an irreverent, ground-breaking American humor magazine. Its success led to a wide range of media productions associated with the magazine's brand name. The magazine ran from 1970 to 1998. It was originally a spinoff of the Harvard Lampoon. The magazine reached its height of popularity and critical acclaim during the 1970s, when it had a far-reaching effect on American humor. It spawned films, radio, live theatre, various kinds of recordings, and print products including books. Many members of the creative staff from the magazine went on to contribute to successful media of all types. During the magazine's most successful years, parody of every kind was a mainstay; surrealist content was also central to its appeal. Almost all the issues included long text pieces, shorter written pieces, a section of actual news items (dubbed "True Facts"), cartoons and comic strips. Most issues also included "Foto Funnies" or fumetti, which often featured nudity. The result was an unusual mix of intelligent, cutting-edge wit, and crass, bawdy frat house jesting. National Lampoon's humor often pushed far beyond the boundaries of what was generally considered appropriate and acceptable. Co-founder Henry Beard described the experience years later: "There was this big door that said, 'Thou shalt not.' We touched it, and it fell off its hinges." The magazine declined during the late 1980s and never recovered. It was kept alive minimally. (In 1992, for instance, only one issue was published.) It ceased publication altogether in 1998.

1939 Rangers-Leafs NHL Game This is a quaint National Film Board of Canada featurette on hockey titled Hot Ice. Most of it focuses on a New York Rangers-Toronto Maple Leafs game at Maple Leaf Gardens played on November 11, 1939. It features an interesting look at old-time hockey. Notice there is no center red line in 1939 and both teams share the same penalty box. Five months later the same two teams would meet in the 1940 Stanley Cup finals, with the Rangers prevailing in six games.

Richard Dawson Cracks Up One of the first clips I ever posted on this website was the famous Family Feud "September" answer which left normally unflappable host Richard Dawson unable to continue. Here's another clip along those same lines. What might you talk to a total stranger about? Mutual friends, of course!

2011 Stanley Cup Riot Commentary One of the most embarrassing episodes in Canadian history: On June 15, 2011, the Boston Bruins soundly defeated the Vancouver Canucks 4-0 to win the Stanley Cup in the seventh game of the finals in Vancouver. Disappointed Canucks fans and mindless hooligans (those two terms may be interchangeable) did not accept the defeat well. They laid waste to Vancouver's downtown--much as they did in 1994 when the Canucks lost in the finals to the New York Rangers! The following night on CBC's National News, commentator Rex Murphy bluntly expressed his disgust with the rioters.

1994 Aeroflot Plane Crash Scandal One of the strangest--and most preventable--air disasters in history was Aeroflot Flight #593. On March 23, 1994 a Russian International Airlines Airbus A310-300 crashed into a hillside of the Kuznetsk Alatau mountain range, Kemerovo Oblast. The jet was en route from Moscow's Sheremetyevo International Airport to Hong Kong's Kai Tak International Airport with 75 occupants aboard, of whom 63 were passengers. Most of the passengers were businessmen from Hong Kong and Taiwan who were seeking economic opportunities in Russia. There were no survivors. No evidence of technical malfunction was found, but cockpit voice and flight data recorders revealed the bizarre reason for the crash: The 12-year-old daughter (Yana) and 16-year-old son (Eldar) of pilot Yaroslav Kudrinsky were present on the flight deck. Eldar apparently had unknowingly disabled the autopilot's control of the aircraft's ailerons while seated at the controls! Yana was also recorded saying, "Daddy, can I turn this?" The aircraft had then rolled into a steep bank and near-vertical dive from which the pilots were unable to regain control in time to prevent the crash. Unlike Soviet planes with which the crew had been familiar, no audible alarm accompanied the autopilot's partial disconnection. Because of this they remained unaware of what was happening until it was too late. The plane slammed into the hillside at high speed before the crew could return the controls to autopilot. As a job perquisite, Aeroflot pilots, once per year, could take their family members on a flight free of charge and even have them present on the flight deck--but having them sit at the controls was absolutely against regulations.

Giants Final Game at Polo Grounds On September 29, 1957, the famous New York Giants baseball team--once the most feared outfit in the National League--played their final game at the Polo Grounds before about 11,000 nostalgic fans. The Giants had represented New York City in the NL since 1883 and had played their home games at four different ballparks known as the Polo Grounds since 1891. Once the city's sports darlings, the Giants had slowly become second bananas to the more glamorous Yankees since the 1920s. One embittered journalist declared, "The real baseball fans in New York supported the Giants. We left the Yankees for the tourists." The Giants lost that last game 9-1 to Pittsburgh. Once the final out was made, fans stormed the field to voice their displeasure with owner Horace Stoneham who had arranged to move the club to San Francisco for the 1958 season. Stoneham wisely did not make an appearance.
