Ben Kerr: A Toronto Legend Passes Away

Do you remember that old guy you used to see when you got off the subway at Yonge and Bloor? He was always there, singing away in that warbling voice with his mic and portable amp. He was even rumored to have been a candidate for mayor in every election since 1985. His name was Ben Kerr and he passed away in his 70's on Friday.
