Sharing a moment with one tin soldier that didn’t ride away.
Edgar is sitting on the statue/sculpture Monument to the War of 1812 by Douglas Coupland, located outside a condo at Bathurst and Lawrence, near Fort York.
The standing soldier is painted gold and depicts a member of the 1813 Royal Newfoundland Regiment. The other is painted silver and depicts an American soldier from the 16th U.S. Infantry Regiment.
The monument is meant to be a scene from April 27, 1813, when U.S. troops overran Fort York, burned it and then left.
