At the foot of Bathurst, Toronto. The plaque says "Monument to the War of 1812" by Douglas Coupland. "Two abandoned toy soldiers pay tribute to Toronto's history in this artwork. Without Fort York there would have been no Canada - the British would have lost Canada to the Americans in the War of 1812, and Canada would have been absorbed into the United States." "Commissioned by Malibu Investments and unveiled by Deputy Mayor Joe Pantalone, November 2008."
