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 »

Terry Fox
18 September 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I loved the movie! It was so good. Those who haven't watched the movie yet, rent it!! Shawn is brilliant in this movie as he portraits Terry Fox. He is such an inspiration to all of us Canadians. He never thought of himself while he ran the Marathon of Hope, but only the children who suffered from cancer all over Canada. He has done such an amazing thing by running across Canada to raise money for cancer research that he gave the children hope that they will survive and that at least somebody cares about them and is willing to do something about it. His dream came true even after his death and his legacy lives on! For 25 years, millions of Canadians have done the Terry Fox run in honor of his memory and they've raised millions of dollars! "A dollar for each Canadian" Terry said, and his dream came true. Terry Fox truly is Canada's biggest hero.
