Episode 20 - Man In Blue - Not So Boring Conversations
A lot can change in 34 years. In 1975 Toronto had an estimated population of almost three million people. Years later the population exceeded over 5 million.

From walking the streets as a beat cop, to running a station filled with young new officers, Bruce experienced the ups and downs the city had to offer.
