Kensington Market man doles out bad advice for $1

Last edited Thu Oct 29, 2015, 02:34 PM - Edit history (1)

(Some background: "Kensington Market is a distinctive multicultural neighbourhood in Downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The Market is an older neighbourhood and one of the city's most well-known. In November 2006, it was designated a National Historic Site of Canada.[1][2] Robert Fulford wrote in 1999 that "Kensington today is as much a legend as a district. The (partly) outdoor market has probably been photographed more often than any other site in Toronto."" Wikipedia)

If youíre looking for some good advice, donít bothering asking Ryan Sadler.
Heíll sell you bad advice for $1 if you spot him around Kensington Market, where heís been catching attention with his kooky sales pitch for the past few weeks.
The Star caught up with Sadler, who has a background in finance, to find out why heís flogging crummy advice.
In case you donít heed Sadlerís warning not to follow his recommendations, take ours ó his advice is really bad!
Where did the idea to give bad advice come from?
I ... was sitting on the couch, watching YouTube clips. Iím a huge Ronda Rousey fan and I was just listening to her give this quote. ... Her basic critique was a person doesnít get to be an active participant in society, you donít actually get to be a critic of situations around you, unless you are actively doing something. It occurred to me I was doing absolutely nothing, so I whipped up a chalkboard sign, came outside and thatís been it.

What are some of the pieces of advice youíve given out?
I will say anything, from ĎGet a tattoo of Stephen Harper on your buttí ó itís a topical tattoo, people like topical tattoos. Iíll tell people to interact in strange, but very friendly and non-aggressive ways with police. Iíll suggest that people ruin their lives in obscene decadence by consuming everything that is put around them. Ö "
