John’s Believe It Or Not… February 6th

Fioravanti stands in front of the classroom blackboard with his hands on his hips. Picture was taken in August, 2006.

It’s Marvellous Monday! Did you know…

  • Elizabeth Windsor becomes Queen Elizabeth II upon the death of her father, King George VI in 1952. She is currently the longest-reigning monarch in the world.
  • CN Tower construction begins in Toronto, Ontario in 1973. Becomes the tallest free-standing building in the world – completed in 1976.
  • Stephen Harper is sworn in as Canada’s 22nd Prime Minister in 2006.
  • “Monopoly”, the board game goes on sale for the first time in 1935.

Author: John Fioravanti

I'm a retired History teacher (35 years), husband, father of three, grandfather of three. My wife, Anne, and I became business partners in December 2013 and launched our own publishing company, Fiora Books (, to publish my books. We have been married since 1973 and hope our joint business venture will be as successful as our marriage.
