People keep taking the Jack Layton statue’s face masks

Luisa Milan has been making bespoke COVID-19 masks for the Jack Layton memorial statue on the waterfront. And people keep taking them. Milan is a Swiss-trained textile artist who has been living on the Toronto Islands since she immigrated to Toronto in 1979, contributing to the community’s Rogue Wave exhibitions. She is currently making a fourth mask for the life-sized bronze statue greeting visitors to Jack Layton Ferry Terminal, after the first three were plucked.
