A Tribute to Les Dawson
The untimely death of Les Dawson has robbed us of one of Britain's best-loved TV personalities - the glum, rubber-faced, northern stand-up comic who made a fine art out of the mother-in-law joke; the game-show host whose subversive wit raised
Blankety Blank to the realms of the surreal; the creator of the hilarious Cissie and Ada characters. In this special tribute friends and admirers look back over the loveable
"ugly mug's" brilliant career.
Executive producer John Whiston

So how did the city respond to such an influx of disabled visitors? And behind the rhetoric, what of Vancouver's own disabled residents denied access because of the fee?
