This Week in Canadian history, July 9, 1960: Seven-year-old Roger Woodward is the first person to survive going over Niagara Falls without a barrel.
Family friend James Honeycutt is on the Niagara River in his aluminum boat with young Roger and his teen-aged sister Deanne. When the engine dies, quick-thinking Honeycutt orders the children to put on life jackets.
The boat is pulled into the current and overturns. Deanne is rescued by two men standing on the shore, while Roger and James go over the Horseshoe Falls. Honeycutt drowns, but little Roger survives thanks to his life jacket.
The boy is picked up by the Maid of the Mist after a harrowing eight minutes under the falls.

NJMC Vice President, Grant Brackebusch, “The test achieved 89% gold recovery after just 11 days of leaching. As demonstrated by these results, the oxidized footwall material in the current open pit at the Golden Chest is readily amenable to heap leaching and the time required to achieve maximum gold recovery is relatively short. We intend to conduct additional column tests of other mineralized material at the Golden Chest Mine so we can fully assess the potential economic benefits of processing lower grade mineralized material

Trend continues downward this week, somewhat sharply, opening at 640.45 to close down at 601.00.
Always Be Closing
Lots of buzz among cannabis investors this week, as the Ontario Securities Commision investigates a possible breach of duty against Canntrust Inc.
Did the company put investors at undue risk by growing cannabis in unlicenced rooms?
Apparently, an employee may have staged an area for regulators by putting up fake walls to hide the unlicenced grow during an inspection.
If so, the company could be on the hook for a lot more than just a plumetting share price.
Stories like these make it hard when speaking to investors about the cannabis industry – many are just not willing to take the risk.
Yet, others see this as the inevitable growing pains of converting a black/grey market product into the biggest cash cow we will likely see in our times.
Happy, and hopefully safe, investing.
