Canadian Tire, West end
"This is my "When my car is broken down bike!" Mike tells me after locking his bike to a parking sign. This Canadian Tire doesn't have a bike rack anymore and after talking to the store manager, it doesn't look like they intend to ever replace it.
Mike says he comes from Salmon Arm and asks if I have ever heard of it? I tell him that I was the guy who photographed Prime Mininster Trudeau giving the finger to some protesters there. "I still have my sky blue tee shirt with the finger on the front!" Mike excitedly answers.
Salmon Arm funded their arena with the proceeds from selling tee shirts and bumper stickers emblazoned with the"Fuddle Finger of Fate".
