Weird news…

… that Neil Hope, aka “Wheels” has died – and has been dead for 5 years. 

Hope was a main character on Degrassi Junior High and later, Degrassi High. These were great ground-breaking Canadian TV series back in the 80’s.  The shows dealt with subjects that were taboo at the time, including teen pregnancy, homophobia and bullying – and it was a gritty and realistic presentation of teen life at the time.

Very strange that we are hearing about this just now – but I suppose the family had its reasons to keep it quiet for so long.

    Ok I know there’s a grieving period but come on 5 years not informing the public.
