I don't mean to be abusive, but I was pretty startled to stumble upon this video clip on a Canadian news archive of a 19 year old William Gibson wondering around down town Toronto, binned giving a CBC camera man a tour of the Yorkville village. Now Yorkville is a place, somewhere at the back of Bloor that started off pretty run down and is now the chief designer boutique and way off the scale up market hang out district for those with a lot of filthy lucre. Gibson was a draft dodger too it turns out, spending his time hanging out round Rochdale College, a student co-op that went well off the map with drug use and the 60's counter culture warbling on about how "sex is regarded as neccesary as a piece of mind," or something. You know that scene of the alternative school in the drugs episode of Brass Eye? Exactly.
