    Save Captain John

    If you've ever fished the Toronto Harbourfront you've probably seen, walked past, parked next to, or possibly even eaten at Captain John's Floating Restaurant at the foot of Yonge street. But did you know the city is working hard to get rid of this landmark? I know Clive and I have walked past many times when fishing the Toronto Islands and wondered if the place was even still open, as it turned out it was- for over 40 years in fact.

    Recently though it looks like Captain John has run in to some problems and a few months ago the city shut off his water and shutdown his restaurant. He was almost evicted from the boat, which is also his home.
