D. Michael Bain is the editor of the Advocate. In 1971 he travelled by ship
from Liverpool to Montréal. His stuffed fuzzy blue elephant, meanwhile,
was hidden in some luggage because, according to Michael’s father, the elephant
did not have a ticket and was therefore a stowaway.

Connor thought that sounded like fun, until he learned the meaning of
“pathology”. “Bring Your Kid to Work Day” was a traumatic experience.

direction and without a donkey.
