This is the "Captain" mascot for the Flight Centre. From 1988 until 2004 actors were used as the model but from 2004 an airline pilot for Eva Airlines was used.

Great shot! Whats up with the typo on "Mountie"? Or is it just a reference that went completely over my head?

All references to RCMP, or Mounted Police, etc. are highly copyrighted. They actually had Disney set up the "brand".
From Wikipedia,

"The Royal Canadian Mounted Police received an international license on April 1, 1995, requiring those who use the RCMP to pay a licensing fee. Proceeds from the fees would be used for community awareness programmes.[71] Those that do not pay the licensing fee are legally unable to use the name of the RCMP or their correct uniforms, though a film such as Canadian Bacon used the name "Royal Mounted Canadian Police" (RMCP) and the character in the Dudley Do-Right film did not wear accurate insignia.

Through a Master Licensing Agreement (MLA) with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the RCMP Foundation is responsible for managing the commercial use of the RCMP name,[72] image and protected marks. The Foundation issues selected companies a royalty-based agreement allowing them to produce and market high quality official RCMP merchandise. Walt Disney Co. (Canada) Ltd. was contracted to aid in the initial set up of the Licensing Program[73] but contrary to popular belief, Disney never owned or controlled any of the RCMP's protected marks.

Following expiration of the Disney contract in 2000, all responsibilities and activities were taken over by the then Executive Director and his staff, reporting to the Foundation President and Board of Directors. In 2007, through a decree signed by Commissioner Beverley Busson, the operating name was changed to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police Foundation."
 
Nice to see the Salmon Run fountain by the dome finally working, and the one on University almost fixed. Thanks for the update androiduk!
 
Queens Quay looking east from Yonge. The last remainders of lakeside industrial Toronto along Queens Quay. This stretch will be exploding with development in addition to Corus Quay, George Brown and Sugar Beach.
