    That's very sad to hear. I gather from the article that she was unwell recently.

    I just heard the news on CTV. Indeed, a sad day. She was a figure skating Icon in Canada. Barbara Ann Scott symbolized greatness in her sport and inspired many a skater in Canada to take up figure skating. She will be missed by the figure skating world.

    I first became interested in figure skating when my mother told me about Barbara Ann. She really was a source of inspiration for little Canadian girls, always proud, determined and very classy. I remember seeing her at various competitions in later years, usually wearing jaunty caps with sequins. She certainly knew how to enter a room or rink! My favourite memory of her is when Liz Manley won Olympic silver; she was completely over the moon with joy at seeing Liz triumph. Priceless! Everyone was so fond of her. She was always Barbara Ann to the skating community. Lucky those who met her and interviewed her.

    This is a great interview. Had me smiling from ear to ear.

    ETA: Thanks manleywoman for the interview. Not only do you get a magnificent sense of her personality but her insight into the sport. Practicing figures for 7 out of the 8 hours - back then...real passion for the sport...and I love the quote about figure skating being about figures and not gymnastics on ice. That's why I miss the CDs....Anyways interviews such as these are such gems..

    Here is Barbara Ann's appearance on the American TV quiz show, "What's My Line."

    This is kind of cute and I'm guessing it was from the 50's.

    and here is Barbara Ann on the cover of Time Magazine, Feb 2, 1948
