    Jiminy, I guess it is too late to get a ride in one of those.

    Must resist Canada bashing joke.

    Her best-known victory came on Jan 31, 1948 in St. Moritz, Switzerland, where she revised her final program to avoid the rough patches on the outdoor ice surface, damaged by hockey players.

    Wow. Now that is impressive.

    This makes me wonder whatever became of the kid who played little Johnny. But Ms. Scott certainly was a sweetheart, by the looks of her bio, on many levels. I’m glad she gets remembered on this one too.

    RIP Ms. Scott; very memorable, even though she had only a bit part in a fantastic short. Outside of MST, it seems she was very talented and a role model to generations of Canadians.

    If only the same could be said for Rowsdower…

    She was a hometown hero, who recently got a gallery at city hall set aside for a display of her many mementos. Though I never got to meet you in person, your accomplishments are well known.

    Farewell, Ms. Scott.

    As I had mentioned in the comments section of “The Rebel Set,” I have been to Toronto a few times, and the skating park across from the Delta Chelsea hotel I always stay at, is named in Ms. Scott’s honour. So long, Ms. Scott. And next time I stay at the Chelsea hotel, I’ll try to get a room that looks over your skating park, so that I can look at it, and think of you.
