Two words for the Liberal Party: Soylent Green.

On Spencer Ave, in glorious Parkdale, is a place called 'Leisure World'. Far from the haven for nerds into model trains and D&D that I recall from my youth, this so-called Leisure World is just the type of place I'd send my aging stepfather if he beat me as a child.
Instead of flowers, Leisure World sows it's gardens with half-wits and attention-starved elderly.
They're everywhere.
There is one man of particular note who, though saddled to a wheelchair, lives life without boundaries; unfortunately, one of the boundaries he now flaunts pertains to the sensible use of a public thoroughfare--for daily I encounter him asleep at his wheels in the middle of the street. The advantage of driving a Smart Car is generally I can maneuver around him.

He does exhibit an uncommon trust in Toronto drivers; I wouldn't sleep in the middle of ANY Toronto street, no matter how much physical mobility I stood to lose.

Dilton is small enough that you could move him right? Nudge him down to The Ex gates without him waking up.

Fun!

Dilton is small enough that if he put on a pair of my glasses, a nice hat, and a coat, he could likely use my passport to get to Vegas.
