The Fire of SS Moronic was a psyop taking place in Toronto harbor, Canada on September 17, 1949. Allegedly, the ship, officially called SS Noronic, was destroyed by fire with the loss of "at least 118 lives" or "119 dead".[MSM 1]

The psyop was post programming for the psyop of the Disappearance of SS Naronic in 1893, lost at sea.

Official story

• SS Noronic was launched June 2, 1913 in Port Arthur (compare Port Arthur massacre, China and Port Arthur massacre, Australia), Ontario, Canada. She was built by the Western Dry Dock and Shipbuilding Company for the Northern Navigation Company, an operating division of Canada Steamship Lines (CSL), to perform passenger and package freight service on the Great Lakes. She had five decks, was 362 feet (110 m) in length, and measured 6,095 gross register tons. At maximum capacity, she could hold 600 passengers and 200 crew. One of the largest and most beautiful passenger ships in Canada at the time, she was nicknamed "The Queen of the Lakes."

• The Noronic had two fleetmate ships, Huronic (1902) and Hamonic. The Hamonic burned in 1945 with one fatality and Huronic was retired and scrapped in 1950.
• On September 14, 1949, the Noronic embarked on a seven-day pleasure cruise of Lake Ontario from Detroit, Michigan. The Noronic departed from Detroit and picked up additional passengers at Cleveland. She was scheduled to travel to Prescott, Ontario and the Thousand Islands before returning via Toronto and Detroit to Sarnia, where she would have remained over the winter. She was carrying 524 passengers, all but 20 of whom were American, and 171 crew members, all Canadian. The captain on the voyage was Capt. William Taylor.
• At 2:30 a.m., passenger Don Church noticed smoke in the aft part of the starboard corridor on C-deck. Church followed the smell of smoke to a small room off the port corridor, just forward of a women’s washroom. Finding that the smoke was coming from a locked linen closet, Church notified bellboy Earnest O’Neil of the fire. Without sounding the alarm, O’Neil ran to the steward’s office on D-deck to retrieve the keys to the closet. Once the closet was opened, the fire exploded into the hallway; it spread quickly, fuelled by the lemon-oil-polished wood panelling on the walls.

• Ronald Anderson was one of the first people on scene of the fire on the SS Naronic Sept. 17, 1949. More than 100 people were killed when the ship caught fire in Toronto Harbour.

Do these photos show the SAME ship??



  • The fire lead to a series of big changes in ship design, with compartments to stop fires from spreading fast.[MSM 1]
  • The captain was convicted because he left the ship without taking care of the passengers (none of the crew died!)
