Emma initially refuses to believe a word of Henry’s story but soon finds that his hometown of Storybrooke, Maine is more than it seems. Because it’s in Storybrooke that all of the classic characters we know are frozen in time with no memories of their former selves – except for the Evil Queen, who is Storybrooke’s mayor and Henry’s adoptive mother Regina Mills.

Mother and daughter trapped and tormented in a black forest by a screeching creature – it is unlike anything we have heard before. Not human. Not animal. Like a thousand horses, like a mother’s clamour, a baby’s wail, a father’s howl. Their relationship at breaking point, 10-year-old Lizzy is all out of faith in her mother Kathy but tries to stay brave and fearless. Kathy, on the edge, barely keeping it together, knows that only a mother’s protective love, her most primal instinct, can save her daughter from what’s lurking in the darkness…

UPDATE: Aaron has had to cancel his appearance at the CIBC Miracle Day after receiving a last minute call to appear in an episode of ONCE UPON A TIME.


Aaron Douglas to join CIBC in raising millions for children’s charities at 31st annual CIBC Miracle Day

VANCOUVER, Dec. 1, 2015

Children’s Aid Foundation will participate in a special cheque presentation in support of Vancouver’s kids-in-need

VANCOUVER, Dec. 1, 2015 /CNW/ – CIBC (TSX: CM) (NYSE: CM) invites the media to its trading floor tomorrow for the 31st annual CIBC Miracle Day – a day when traders and advisors donate their fees and commissions to children’s charities. All money raised stays in the community benefitting local organizations like the Take a Hike Foundation and the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice Foundation.

Last year, CIBC Miracle Day raised more than $5.5 million for more than 550 children’s charities across Canada and to mark this year’s celebration a special cheque presentation – representing a $1 million commitment made possible by Miracle Day – will be made to the Children’s Aid Foundation.

WHEN: Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2015 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Aaron Douglas, actor
• Children’s Aid Foundation, Valerie McMurty, Chief Executive Officer
• Big Sisters of Lower B.C. Lower Mainland, Fleur Cooper, Manager

WHERE: 400 Burrard Street, 12th Floor

WHAT: Special guests and not-for-profit organizations join CIBC to celebrate the 31st annual CIBC Miracle Day.

In 1984, a Wood Gundy office in Toronto came up with an idea that would ultimately change the lives of children across Canada.

The late Tim Miller and the investment advisors at the 42nd Street branch – named after the famous 42nd Street in New York and located on the 42nd floor of the Head Office – decided to donate their commissions for one day of business to children’s charities. For people who count on commissions for their livelihood, giving them up – even if only for one day – was a sacrifice. However, the branch’s Investment Advisors were fully supportive of the initiative.

The branch called it Miracle on 42nd Street and raised $163,935 in that first year. While CIBC Miracle Day has grown expeditiously, the original objective has stayed the same: Investing in the lives of children to help prepare them for the future and to make sure that tomorrow’s citizens are backed by a strong portfolio of skills and support.
