THE BIZARRE

Richmond Hill Post - - News -

To cel­e­brate cannabis le­gal­iza­tion in Canada, many a pot-lov­ing lo­cal de­scended on Trin­ity Bell­woods Park in the city’s west end to some­what legally blaze in pub­lic for the first time. There to cel­e­brate was a new pop mas­cot of sorts, a cos­tumed an­i­mal char­ac­ter dubbed Toka­roo, car­ry­ing a gi­ant joint. We all re­mem­ber Polka­roo from the kids’ TV show The Polka Dot Door. But ob­vi­ously there couldn’t be a con­nec­tion. Or could there? Turns out, the man be­hind Toka­roo is Mark Scott, who also played Polka­roo for 22 years.
