The Democracy of the Dead

The view of downtown Toronto (with St. Michael's Cathedral visible in the background) circa 1876.

Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to that arrogant oligarchy who merely happen to be walking around.
