Stranger Cole in Toronto
The short but enlightening film explores the entrepreneurial Jamaican singer/producer’s time in Toronto.

Ruff and Tuff
Jamaican Ska and Reggae legend Stranger Cole moved to Toronto in the early 1970s leaving stardom behind.

Despite his talent he was forced to work at the Tonka Toy factory and as a security guard at Eaton’s to make a living.

He eventually established the first Caribbean business in Kensington Market – a record store and label at 58 Kensington Ave.

Some 40 years later,  Stranger Cole took some time off from his busy tour schedule to visit his old neighbourhood.

Watch Chris Flanagan and Graeme Mahieson‘s mini-doc Ruff and Tuff below followed by a video for Stranger Cole’s latest recording “Step Up” with the Kingston All Stars.
