The Trad'n Post 1983-84

The following story was printed in the Trad'n Post in 1983/84:

Doug Johnson lived in a downtown hotel within easy walking distance to the TSE. Doug looked out the window of his room and noticed it was snowing very heavily, phoned the office, told the manager that due to the snowfall couldn't make it to TSE. Traders living in Barrie were on the trading floor by 8.30 am.
