TORONTO (January 30, 2013) – W5 recounts the horrific shooting and exclusively documents the miraculous recovery of Connor Stevenson, an innocent teenaged bystander shot in the head when a gunman unleashed a spray of bullets in Toronto’s Eaton Centre food court. CTV News’ Lisa LaFlamme sits down with Stevenson, his family, and the team who came to the rescue on that harrowing day in “THE SURVIVOR”, premiering this Saturday, Feb. 2 at 7 p.m. ET on CTV.
W5 hears from the first responders that entered the crime scene amidst a stampede of terrified people, and recounts their heroic efforts as a young life hung in the balance. LaFlamme joins the Stevenson family and emergency responders as they return to the scene of the crime for the first time, and take in just how close to a deadly outcome they came.
Then, in “CONNING CANADA”, W5 investigates the astonishing story of Sandra Gordon, a career criminal who has faced multiple deportation orders, yet remains in Canada. First investigated by W5 in 2006, Gordon continues to evade deportation despite close to a 40-year criminal history. Seamus O’Regan reveals how Gordon has benefitted from the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and how privacy laws continue to shroud her case in secrecy.
W5 also airs Fridays at 10 p.m. ET on CTV Two. W5 can also be seen on Investigation Discovery on Tuesdays at 11 p.m. ET, and Wednesdays at 3 a.m. ET, 6 a.m. ET and 12 noon ET; and on demand at CTVNews.ca/W5, the CTV Mobile channel on Bell Mobile TV, and through video on demand partners, such as Bell Fibe TV (visit CTV.ca for local listings).
