Earlier this month, fire destroyed nearly four decades' worth of film and video footage in Ottawa's CJOH newsroom; it was a devastating loss, not just for the media organization but also for Canadian history. It was made even more poignant by the fact that long-time news anchor Max Keeping is retiring, and had hoped to take his archive of memories stored at CJOH.
