It's rare in a country's history that people can recall exactly where they were and what it meant to them when an event occurs. Sometimes those recollections occur during tragedies, like 9/11. But it's the positive and powerful moments like Terry Fox's Marathon of Hope and more recently, Sidney Crosby's Golden Goal that help unite our great country.
The same could be said for the '72 Summit Series. As part the of the 40th Anniversary of Team Canada's '72 series victory, 'Canadian Stories from 1972 Summit Series' is a proposed project that will provide an opportunity for Canadians to share their stories with their kids and grandkids regarding what Team Canada's win meant to them. While Paul Henderson's goal stands out as a signature moment, Canadians will have additional recollections of that historic eight game series.
