Const. Victor Kwong, a spokesperson for the Toronto police, said police are aware of the planned orgy

Is the orgy planned for Trinity Bellwoods Park for real?

Gee I remember when Toronto shut down on Sundays.

    Eaton’s used to close the curtains on their Toronto show windows. isyn.
    The closest competition was Cleveland.

    • Remember the liquor stores? That little piece of paper you had to fill out and bring to the cashier?

      • What piece of paper?

        • You literally had to fill out a form and bring it to the “Man” at the counter who would then enter the back room and come out with your bottle.

          You weren’t allowed to see the booze before purchasing.

            I remember my Dad buying booze then. “The Man” would have a white shirt on and wrap up the dirty Mickey bottle in brown paper.

          • It was like booze Porn.

          • Jeeze Louise. What, like personal details and stuff?

          • Exile1981

            No just what you wanted to buy. You put the size, brand and type of alcohol.

          • But.. what for?

          • andycanuck

            So the desk clerk could go and pick out your bottle from the stock that was all held in the back, behind the counter.

            At Brewers Retail you’d go to the counter and ask for what you wanted (e.g. a two-four of Fifty) and they’d get if from the backroom storage and send it out to you on the rollers that are now used to roll your empty-returns into the backroom.

            You may recall the Mackenzie brothers going to the Brewers Retail to complain about the mouse in the bottle and they got their new ‘square’ there in Strange Brew.

          • Wierd.

          • andycanuck

            Anti-drinking Nonconformist Protestants like those in the Loyal Orange Order were a major political force in Ontario until the late ’60s. Toronto had all sorts of weird bar-restaurant laws until the late ’70s. (Although, to be fair, I think even Quebec had some Temperance-related laws before the late ’60s too.)

            It was pretty much the same across English Canada back then. I remember in Nova Scotia how in a restaurant that served drinks, you had to order food in order to drink. So a bunch of us would order a plate of chips in order to order what we wanted to drink. The chips remained on the table for several hours while we finished off several beers or other drinks. This was in the mid-sixties no less, and of course you had to be 21.

          • andycanuck

            Yeah. A bartender from Montreal I knew in Toronto told about how they had a plastic-wrapped sandwich that was used as decoration on tables pretending to be the drinking patrons’ “meal” and the bartender there got upset when someone ate the “decorative” sandwich!

          • Not quite that bad;)

          • Clink9

            I remember in Toronto in the olden days (seventies) you couldn’t stand with a drink in a bar.

          • Wild.

          • Alain

            Like purchasing cigarettes nowadays.

    “It’s frustrating since people genuinely want to come together as a community and even as a city.”

    Sometimes these things write themselves.

  • Funny, in the comments somebody makes a joke about Bruce the Tranny and another tranny responds:

    highfired519
    @rosedale71 I imagine you
    think your remark quite clever whereas in reality you have exposed
    yourself to be an utter fool with a blatant lack of sensitivity to the
    trans community and a disgrace to Rosedale for whom you do not speak but
    perhaps aspire to belong.

    Those dumb pervs have no sense of humour.

    I heard Michael Coren is going to attend with the congregation of his new church.

    • El Martyachi

      Oh I’d assumed the orgy was said congregation.

      And I’m also assuming the police will be there to ensure all goes smoothly as they do at the pride parade.

      And I’m also talking to a goat butterfly.

      • The Butterfly

        I am a beautiful butterfly.

  • Exile1981

    1000 perverts signed up to join in a mass group sex activity….. that’s a park to avoid on that night.

    I thought that what is the pride parades are for!

    Well it is clear that I was born much too soon. I recall in my early twenties when visiting Toronto and Ottawa that even the petrol stations were closed on Sundays. In Ottawa you had to drive over to Quebec to fill up, have a drink and find entertainment. I certainly missed out based on this.
