about this item
The Orillia Spirit:
- Muddling through Canada’s first, and hilarious, experiment with daylight savings time, Mayor “Daylight Bill” Frost had it.
- Creating his own money and dreaming a drainage ditch would become a tourist attraction, Mayor Ben Johnson had it.
- Taking his town’s electric company by force, Mayor J.B. Tudhope had it.
- Inventing early forms of medicare and the first RVs, dreaming of universities and folk festivals, battling for decades over liquor and rinks, ordinary people had it.
