Bret Hart's Calgary: Famed pro wrestler tours most memorable places in his home town
The fights, the laughs and places in Calgary that changed 'The Hitman'
Originally published Feb. 5.
He's a Calgary legend.
Earlier this week, pro-wrestling hall of famer Bret 'The Hitman' Hart announced he's been diagnosed prostate cancer.
The 58-year-old pledged to wage a "fearsome fight" against the disease, "carrying my determination and my fury for life, emboldened by all the love that's kept me going this long already."
Bret, of course, is a member of the famous Hart wrestling dynasty. His family is one of the best known in our city. Their history is a part of our history.
A couple weeks back, before his cancer announcement, we asked Bret to show us around his Calgary, as part of our Calgary at a Crossroads project.
Bret and the CBC's Mike Symington hit the road.
And boy did Bret ever have some stories to tell.
It's Calgary, like you just might remember it.
Calgary at a Crossroads is CBC Calgary's special focus on life in our city during the downturn. A look at Calgary's culture, identity and what it means to be Calgarian. Read more stories from the series at Calgary at a Crossroads.
