Driven earlier this year in downtown New York, the vehicle attracted little attention. Driven later in Montreal, the artist's hometown, it merely received a police warning. But everyone should have known things wouldn't go so easily in Hogtown (Toronto) [...]

"Cruising at speeds of up to, oh, 12 kilometres per hour," writes gallery director Dave Dyment on the Mercer Union website, "we drove nine blocks (from Lisgar to Strachan) before being pulled over by the police." The charge? "Operating an unsafe vehicle."
