    I Was In My Teens. I Was With My Mother At Eaton Centre In Edmonton Alberta.

    Yep. I saw Heather Tom who played Victoria Newman on Y&R soap opera. She was a nice lady. She was signing autographs. Of course the autographs wasn't free. You need to pay $5. I asked my mother. She said no. I tried to convince but I can't. So I just drop it.
