Controversial "outpouring of God" that began in 1994 at a church now known as Toronto Airport Christian Fellowship, in Etobicoke. It was still known in '94 as Toronto Vineyard Christian Fellowship; the subsequent notoriety led to a friendly parting of the ways with the Association of Vineyard Churches, IIRC.

Called "the laughing revival": a noticeable (and widely-reported) trait of it was mass laughter, but people over the years have reacted in other ways, too - weeping, wails, animal sounds (controversial!), dancing, etc. Perhaps too much attention has been paid to the oddity and not enough to the content. ("By their fruits you shall know them" - Matt 7:16).

A more recent phenomenon has been that of dental fillings turning to gold, akin to the experiences of some pilgrims to Medjugorje having the metal in their Rosaries turn gold.
