Vintage Toronto Ads: Season’s Greetings from CBC Toronto

A short but sweet season’s greeting for you from some of CBC Toronto’s mid-1970s personalities. Dig those frames on young Hana Gartner! The passage of time has made it hard to determine if the “oh yeah” was part of the original ad or a sarcastic comment by a previous reader.
Note that two of the personalities featured in today’s ad have passed away since last Christmas: longtime morning show host Bruce Smith and writer/activist June Callwood.
