I’m not sure I know the whole story though, here’s what I saw…
When i lived + worked in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver during the mid 1980’s + 90s, I kept seeing a ‘Repent Sinner’ sticker plastered about the city and beyond. Every sticker I happened to see, was always hand-written in two colours: the first word, Repent in red and the 2nd, Sinner in black. jiffy marker.
These stickers were posted randomly, all over—on telephone poles, walls and benches—sprinkled about and throughout the eastside of Vancouver (DTES).
Rumour has it that it was an elderly Jamaican woman who was the culprit—who definitely made her message clear… Frankly, I thought it was a brilliant guerrilla marketing art project—which became a wee Vancouver urban legend! We’ll never really know…though, i feel it’s very cool… x (((o)))
If you happen to know more about this legend of Vancouver, drop me a comment below…
