I believe it was also in 2002 when Duane Forde and his wife received death threats.
The day after I (Sheri Forde) returned to work following my honeymoon with Duane, my co-anchors on the CFTO news desk flashed a picture of my wedding on the screen to congratulate me. The next day, I was ushered into my news director’s office…where I was informed that the station had received death threats directed at Duane and me. Death threats. People — 21st Century Canadian people — actually wanted to kill me because I married a black man. Imagine that for a minute.
