Alum Tries to Make Amends for Atrocious Valedictory Speech

In 1987, as a graduating student at University of King's College in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Christopher Richardson gave a valedictory speech worthy of Animal House. Molson's Canadian bottle and all.

Ever since that misguided move, he's been burdened by regret over his actions. With his school's 25th reunion taking place earlier this spring, he decided to pin a documentary on his conflicted feelings and decision to hook back up with former classmates in May. He also set about gathering testimonials from other Canadians about their biggest life's regrets.

The 60-minute Regret will air on Canada's Documentary Channel in December. It's an intriguing follow-up from the man who gained acclaim in 2010 with his Third World trek-doc Where's My Goat? Richardson is also a co-founder of St. John's, Newfoundland production services company Henge.
