|Charlie Sheen at Massey Hall|
Just earlier, Ontario's Health Promotion Minister Margarett Best had issued a warning to Sheen concerning our Province's anti-indoor Smoking Laws. Even Sean Penn's Celebrity Power couldn't grant him special treatment, having been slapped with a $600 fine by Toronto's Health Department back during TIFF 2006. Massey Hall could have faced up to a $100k fine should Sheen have been found to be smoking within the venue.
TMZ reports that Sheen, who has smoked on other stops of his Tour on-stage, apparently found a way to work around the Law, lighting up an Electronic Cigarette before the audience. If this is what Sheen calls "winning", then it was a sneaky victory, indeed!
Earlier in the evening, I spotted this lovely Sheen Fan (above) who told me that she works at St. Michael's Hospital, just across the road from Massey Hall. Having been on Sick Leave for a while, Sheen's visit was just what she needed to lighten her spirits. She went to T-Shirt Maker Bang-On and made things that bit more festive, with a Shirt that read "I'm on a Drug called Charlie Sheen". On the back of her Shirt was an image of a bloody Tiger, which read "Tiger Blood" and "Winning" - nonsensical ramblings from the former Two and a Half Men Actor, which the Public has embraced with fervour. The Fan had bought herself a Floor Seat for the Show, telling me "I can't do anything to help him myself, but I can only hope that he gets better.".
Shot7News got a
