Comic Advertising: Montréal

From Le Samedi 20 octobre 1956. The top advertisement surprised me. The toque, the lumberjack shirt, the moustache, the gum-boots -- this French-Canadian depiction is the same as the English stereotype. The difference is that unlike the dastardly villain of the movies this fellow is a real hero.
