The Globe and Mail's 'moment in time' today is the Almonte train crash

Globe and Mail moment in time - Almonte train wreck 001On December 27, 1942, in the midst of the second world war, a special train carrying Canadian soldiers for overseas service struck the rear of a stationary train crowded with holiday passengers, demolishing the three rear coaches. The number known to have died was 39 and more than 150 were injured. Today, in its daily “moment in time” photo on the inside of the front page, the Globe and Mail recognizes The Almonte Train Crash.
