02-378-87. Pg. 13. Caption: Mike Davidson of the Alta Lake Sports Club will even spend time in the brig if it means hanging onto his hobby cannons. The one-pounder above was made by Great West Cannon Co. of Granville Island and is authentic in size and workmanship to the original. Davidson says. It was often hoisted into a ship's rigging and used to fire nails and other shrapnel at the enemy. Davidson uses the cannon to proclaim the open various sporting events but two years ago found himself in RCMP lock-up for four hours when a policeman arrested him for discharging a firearm in the municipality. But it's all in good fund, and the only thing fired is paper.
