Orillia: "the Teenage-Mom, Unwed, Beer-Drinking Capital of Canada"

STORY BY: Nancy Katsof
YEAR: 1990

Nancy shares a story about working as a stage manager in summer theatre in Orillia, ON. Despite a character in BOOM X claiming that Lindsay is the "teenage pregnancy capital of Ontario", Nancy takes it up a notch. She calls Orillia the "teenage-mom, unwed, beer-drinking capital of Canada"! And she ends with a plug for the waitresses on roller skates at the Orange Julep. Thanks for sharing, Nancy.
