Exhibit A

The topless woman protesting the censoring of topless women in the Ottawa Sun brought back memories for some veteran Toronto Sun readers.

While the Toronto Sun has never published a topless Sunshine Girl photo, this early Norm Betts shot of model Sandy taking a dip in the cool waters of Lake Ontario got pretty darn close. 

Former Sun photog Bill Sandford commented in TSF: "I always thought that at some point before I passed, the Toronto Sun would run a topless Sunshine Girl. Guess not, and I think time is running out for the Sun papers as we knew them."

Well, Bill, this Betts Page 3 photo is probably as close to bared nipples in the Sun as you're going to get. 

As for the Ottawa protester, you go, girl.

  1. Many years ago the Edmonton Sun published a Sunshine Girl wearing nothing but a small "Go Esks Go" button. The switchboard was a bit busy that day.
