I swear, you can't make this stuff up sometimes. It's sort of sad, because Thomas Ahearn was a remarkable character. He invented the electric stove, and was responsible with Warren Soper for building Ottawa's streetcar system. What's more, they managed to build the first 4 streetcar lines, rolling stock and infrastructure in 100 days, a feat that would take years today.
