It's a complete mystery to me why Newfoundland wasn't even mentioned in the movie by James Cameron!And Cameron himself was a Canadian.Maybe Cameron thought ,as many Canadians did ,and do ,even at present, that Newfounland wasn't/isn't even part of Canada?No wonder so many Newfoundlanders feel as if they'd gotten a raw deal by becoming a Canadian province?An ecomomic union with the US ,which was in the works at the time by well known Newfoundlanders Don Jamieson and Ches Crosby ,(who had gotten the go ahead from the Congress of the US to enter into such a union),to my way of thinking,would have been a much better move.But,old Winston Churchill wouldn't have none of that.So the US backed off.What a sad day for the people of Newfoundland that was!

Jimmy Myrick . As a boy of 14, had taken the Titanic’s distress call on April 14, 1912. no doubt young Jimmy saved many lives that night but he never looked for any rewards. i hope now he will get the recogition he truely deserves. not to take anything away from the regular operator, he could have stepped out to use the bathroom. way to go Jimmy Myrick. hear.. hear..
