Actually, it's going to New Brunswick where CTV is filming a made for tv movie called Sticks and Stones:
Sticks and Stones is inspired by real-life events surrounding the Canadian pee wee hockey team that organized a Friendship Series tournament to make amends for the ill-treatment an American team received during a visit to Canada at the beginning of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. In March 2003, thousands of anti-war protesters in Montreal harassed a bus carrying 12-year-old American hockey players from Brockton, Massachusetts, on their way to play in a tournament. Later, Canadian fans attending a professional hockey game booed the American national anthem in front of these same kids, who were barraged by hecklers telling them to "go home".
After the team was made to feel unwelcome at the hockey tournament that they had looked forward to all season, the boys and their families left, vowing never to return to Canada. A year later, thanks to the efforts of several New Brunswick families, the American pee wee players were welcomed back to Canada for the "Friendship 2004 Hockey Tournament".
Sticks and Stones stars David Sutcliffe (Gilmore Girls, Murder in the Hamptons), John Robinson (Head in the Clouds, Killer Wave), and introduces young actor Alexander De Jordy.
1972 Summit Series.com will appear on De Jordy's laptop computer screen as he researches ways to make amends with the American hockey players.
