Vancouver as Canada’s Jaywalking Capital, 1918

I had the honour of speaking with CBC Radio’s Margaret Gallagher during the “On The Coast” radio program about how Jaywalking developed in Canada, and the sad “premiere” Vancouver had, as the first city where “jaywalking” was identified in 1918.

Here’s the interview conducted in May, 2021.

Thank you Margaret, for being such a gracious host.
