The 125th Canadian National Exhibition opened last week. It's the world's largest annual exposition and a great annual tradition here in Toronto.
I probably won't go to the Ex again until James is old enough to really enjoy it. You see, as a teenager, I seriously overdosed on the place. From 1989 through 1991 I worked at the CNE and walked the midway all 60 days it was open during that span. I've got a tonne of Ex memories, as you can imagine, and I'll try to share a few here over the next couple of weeks.
Stay tuned for the true tales of a game booth attendant! There's an intimidating presence named Ardo, carney heroics and lives risked for the sake of a giant stuffed bear.
