Toy Tiger had its Canadian premiere on November 23rd, 2009 at the Empire Studio 7 Theatre in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. "Twilight:New Moon" had to be bumped out of the big theatre to accomodate the 700 people that showed up to support their hometown heroes. Well over 200 people were turned away at the door and two additional screenings had to be added with a third likely for December. The screenings were a benefit for former Canadian Lightweight Champion Barry Sponagle who lost his home in a house fire last year. Check out Peter Clarke's article about the premiere, from the new Glasgow news.
