On GST this week Aug 29 - Sept 2

As a tribute to Jack Layton, George placed a white mustache on his Twitter photo.
He called it trustache and it caught on with people who wanted to pay that tribute to Jack.
Chalk mustaches could be seen on the ground and walls at City Hall as a variation of the mustache tribute.
Jack Layton had been on The Hour and the RMR a number of times and could be encountered around the City of Toronto and across the country at many charity, public and of course political events. He will be missed.
RIP Jack Layton and thank you!
