I had the opportunity to document Honest Ed's final turkey giveaway, held on Sunday December 13th, 2015. Many notables were actively involved, including Mayor John Tory, Police Chief Mark Saunders, Blue Jays player Dalton Pompey, Mike "Pinball" Clemons, members of Toronto's Kinky Boots theatre production, and several others.
I was very impressed with several long-time Honest Ed's employees who I met, including Frank (employed for 48.5 years), John (employed for 39.5 years service) and Maria (employed for almost 41 years) - all who are included in this photo album.
Honest Ed's will remain open until the end of 2016, and a redevelopment plan is already in process. I'll miss this great one-of-a-kind Toronto institution. Let's enjoy it while we still can.
