Having finally convinced the Niagara Parks Commission that he’s not going to fall to a watery death, a date has been set for American daredevil Nik Wallenda to cross Horseshoe Falls along a steel cable. On June 15, the world will turn its eyes on Southern Ontario to witness the stunt, which should pump $120-million into the local economy and will likely be more memorable than a trip to the casino or wax museum.  [Globe and Mail]
