Montreal's first "glow in the dark" mural. By british artist Onur. It's in Chinatown and I think it's very cool :-)

There is a Canada 150 sign in downtown Regina. I believe there are 19 of them in cities across the country. Some are a bit smaller.

Interesting. I really like his stuff. I thought the style looked familiar and realized we have on of his sculptures on 4th St. off 17th.
