Pretty sure the first pic you have there isn't Ross but Gerry Matticks
Thanks. I switched it.
I have seen this house when I used to SundayDrive out that way. Beautiful place, I was told a well known Montreal wrestler owned it. . . I thought maybe Yvon Robert?
Corey Hart. He used to stop in for tea at the Angus'
Are you sure it was Corey? In the late 80's, my brother discussed renovating his house which was back off the road against Braeside Golf Course. Unless he moved since the late 80's, Corey might not be the right answer (or maybe it's not the right house!). Duncan MacTavish - Former Sennevillain.
Not sure that is Corey's place unless he moved from the late 80's. My brother talked about renovating his home which was located away from Senneville road by Braeside Golf Course....but perhaps he moved since then.
Hart's been between Nassau & Barcelona with his wife Julie Masse since at least the end of the '90's or before.
I'm thinking it was Corey hart...
Chers amis excusez-moi.- but is the Corey Hart mentioned in many postings here the Corey Hart who in fact was a wrestler. I think he had an accident and lost his life in some kind of ring performance in the USA . Please forgive my ignorance, but I am not a fan of the sport and know very little about it, but someone told me about a guy named Hart who was from Montreal and who died in the ring. I simply thought that this was the home of a famous Canadian wrestler. Or is it the Corey Hart who sang country-like songs. If it is he, then he is a much younger person I would have expected to see as the owner of this mansion. Am very interested to find out who the owner was. Cheers! Could the owner have by any chance been Corey Thompson who was better known as Uncle Troy on Montreal radio?
Uncle Troy - wasn't he the host of "Call Me Uncle" on CKVL in the late 1950's? CKVL (a bilingual station at the time) also hosted "Le Hit Parade americain avec Leon Lachance" for some years.Keeping off-topic with Montreal children's radio programs of the 50's and 60's: remember "Never Never Land" with "Uncle Reg" [Groome] Sunday mornings on CJAD.
Corey Thompson, “Uncle Troy”, was a very well educated and articulate person, and totally bi-lingual. He was married to a French lady. He certainly would be capable of hosting the shows and programs listed by Anonymous, but I cannot say that he is the same person in question. As everyone probably knows, he was sponsored for years by Troy Laundry, hence the name, “Uncle Troy - The Answer Man". Corey Thompson was well loved by many Montrealers. He had a most melodious and friendly voice speaking either in English or French, and no matter the subject matter he would discuss, he always knew what he was talking about. A very amiable and engaging character. Another memorable and worthy Montreal celebrity. We have many, if you think back.
The host of "Call Me Uncle" (at least in the late 50's) was Hal Wardell.I still remember the phone number for Troy Laundry from their ads: POntiac 6-2351. (and CKVL was POntiac 6-2311.)
Too bad Anonymous is anonymous. He, or she, deserves some kind of special recognition for remembering POntiac 6-2351. Wonder what would happen if I would call Troy Laundry and ask them to pick up my soiled shirts now? In the old days they would have them back spick and span in two days -washed, ironed and packaged beautifully. (seven cents per shirt). No longer in business??? What a pity.
Back in the day, POntiac Exchange was the place you could dial all seven digits in reverse.POntiac 5-4321 = 765-4321Thank You.
