Pierre Trudeau Just Watch Me This 1970 clip of Canadian prime minister Pierre Trudeau is probably unknown to Americans, but it's very famous in Canada. In October 1970, a radical French-Canadian separatist group, the FLQ, began a reign of terror in the province of Quebec. James Cross, a visiting British diplomat, was kidnapped. Shortly afterward, Pierre Laporte, a Quebec cabinet minister, was also kidnapped. (Laporte's dead body was found a few days later.) Prime minister Trudeau responded by invoking Canada's War Measures Act which gave the government extraordinary powers to preserve order. The civil libertarians didn't like it, but it was the most popular thing Trudeau ever did. Watch him as he fields questions from a left-leaning TV reporter.

Alferd G Packer - Cannibal The only person in American history to be convicted of cannibalism was Alferd (sometimes written 'Alfred') G. Packer. Packer, a Civil War veteran, was one of 21 prospectors who intended to try their luck in the Colorado gold fields. The group got to Provo, Utah in February 1874. Against the advice of the locals, Packer and five others decided to continue their trek across the Rocky Mountains in the dead of winter. They quickly got lost and ran out of provisions. Packer was the only survivor. Two months later Packer was seen by other members of the original prospectors' group who didn't believe his story that his companions never returned from a search for food. Packer eventually confessed to cannibalism, escaped custody twice, but was found in Wyoming in 1883. Packer was sentenced to 40 years in jail. He was paroled by Colorado's governor in 1901 and died six years later at age 65. In 1968, as a gag, students at the University of Colorado at Boulder voted to name their school cafeteria the Alferd G. Packer Memorial Grill. It bears the slogan, 'Have a friend for lunch!' A statue of Packer was erected on campus in 1982.

Poppy - Symbol of Remembrance When Americans visit Canada in the the first days of November, they are often puzzled by the poppies Canadians wear on their jackets. The poppy is a symbol of remembrance that dates to the First World War. It is based upon a famous poem, In Flanders Fields. It was written by a Canadian battlefield surgeon John McCrae, who was in charge of an aid station in Belgium in 1915. McCrae wrote the verse after a close friend of his was killed by an artillery shell. (McCrae himself did not survive the war; he died of meningitis in 1918.) The full poem is below in the comments section. A good many Canadians know it by heart.

Remains of George Mallory Found - 1999 Seventy-Five years after British mountaineer George Mallory vanished in June 1924 in his attempt to be the first man to scale Mount Everest, an expedition from National Geographic was organized to try to find his remains--along with those of his climbing colleague Andrew Irvine. The two were last seen alive about 800 meters from the summit. In 1979 a Chinese mountaineer reported to a Japanese climber that he had come across the remains of "an Englishman" during an ascent in 1975. The Chinese climber was killed in an avalanche the following day before he could give precise directions to the corpse. Going on the general location the Chinese climber had provided, the 1999 expedition covered a search area about the size of a dozen football fields. Sure enough, on May 1, 1999, Mallory's mummified corpse, sun bleached to an alabaster white, was discovered face down and fused to the mountain scree by American searcher Conrad Anker. ID tags on the clothing quickly confirmed the body was indeed Mallory's. Found in Mallory's possession was a letter from his brother and an unpaid bill Mallory owed to a London clothing shop. Mallory had several broken bones and a punctured skull, leading to speculation that he had severely injured himself in a sudden, violent fall and likely froze to death in a helpless state in a matter of minutes. Whether Mallory made it to Everest's summit or not is a matter of heated debate. Irvine's body has yet to be found. Warning: The clip is a little bit gruesome.
