Elizabeth May jumping on and off a regular VIA train at every stop, giving a speech and jumping back on. TVA guy asks her to speak in French. She said she was against "les coutures" (Clothing Fashions) rather than "Les coupures", the cuts to social spending.

Hans Jewinski was a Metro Toronto Police officer who wrote poetry - quite serious solid poems about street life in a large city:
"You died holding
the needle of your life
measured out in bags
too pure even for your
habit to support"
- Death in an Echo Chamber, Poet Cop, 1975.
(Also giving it away on bookmooch - see above or contact me.)

When I first saw this sign I thought it was from a stage adaption of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby - it is really a signboard someone found in the walls of a garage they were demolishing - it had the same image on the other sign but was covered with old newspapers - no record of a B. Laurance ( sic ) Spectacles - possibly an itinerant spectacle maker, but since it's written on both sides it is probably real.
