Connect in New York
We're live in New York tonight, and with days until the anniversary of 9/11, a new terror threat has put New Yorkers on high alert. Tonight we examine how the event has changed their lives, and if they can leave the past behind them.
Mark speaks with a man who escaped death in the World Trade Centre by minutes, thanks to waiting for a longer commuter train when his express train was too crowded. He arrived at work five minutes after the first plane hit. We also look at some of the Canadian stories of victims of 9/11.
Also, ten years ago the people of Gander, Newfoundland opened their homes to thousands of travelers whose flights were forced to make hasty landings during and after the attacks. Today President Obama praised Newfoundlanders for their kindness. Our Nick Purdon visits Gander and discovers the generosity is still alive a decade later.Tune in at 8 p.m. ET for this special edition of Connect.
