“Howie Morenz: At the bottom of the second column on page 14 of the Hockey Day in Stratford supplement there’s an allusion to Dean Robinson doing an interview with hockey great Howie Morenz. Morenz, however, died in 1937, nine years before Mr. Robinson was born. We regret the error. Mr. Robinson did a 32-minute video documentary in the late 1970s on the life and death of Howie Morenz that includes interviews with those who knew him and saw him play. It also includes film footage of Morenz in action and an interview with Howie Morenz Jr.” –The Beacon Herald
