A mini doc about Stranger Cole’s Toronto Roots.

Jamaican Ska and Reggae legend Stranger Cole moved to Toronto in the early 1970s leaving stardom behind. Despite his talent he was forced to work at the Tonka Toy factory and as a security guard at Eaton’s to make a living. He eventually established the first Caribbean business in Kensington Market – a record store and label at 58 Kensington Ave. Check out a short teaser which I made in collaboration with Graeme Mathieson!
