About Save Captain John HELP SAVE CAPTAIN JOHN’S LEGACY Captain John has faced hardship his entire life, but has succeeded in bringing his dreams to reality. A refugee before the age of 15, he opened Toronto’s first floating restaurant in 1970. Even when his dreams were just that, he has always managed to survive. John knows how lucky he is and has always tried to share his good fortune with those in need. Now, circumstances beyond his control threaten his ability to walk off his ship and retire with dignity. Despite his 40 years of fair and generous public behaviour, Captain John is being unfairly persecuted. Without notice the city has cut off his water, forcing his restaurant to close, and leaving him without any income or means to support himself. Don’t let Captain John’s legacy go down with his ship!
