Goofs

In one scene, Bill Vigars refers to Canada Day, the July 1 holiday commemorating the Confederation of Canada. This may be perceived as an anachronism, as the holiday was not officially known as Canada Day until 1982; in 1980, its official name was still Dominion Day. However, it should be noted that informally, many Canadians were already referring to the holiday as Canada Day; the official name change *reflected* an already existing usage. See more »

A New Perspective
12 September 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Being from Coquitlam, Terry's hometown, and having met many members of the Fox family, this really hit a nerve. With hometown pride and all, in schools they show a video about his life every year. I was glad to see a lot of the shots were recreations of archival footage I've seen a thousand times. It made it seem so real. But this movie did something that the school video couldn't. It delved into his life, when there were no cameras around. I didn't really realize how much pain he was in until I saw this. You just can't really tell what's behind the brave face from old news footage. Definitely something to see, it's both entertaining and inspiring (in a non-cheesy way).
