Section of urinal trough removed from Canad Inns Stadium

Leigh Young has officially doubled his prized collection of urinal toughs.

On Monday afternoon Young and a small crew from his To-Le-Do Food Service business successfully removed eight feet of trough from the southwest men's ground floor washroom in Canad Inns Stadium.

Young told the Free Press last week the Bombers had agreed to let him remove eight feet of 'choice' trough in exchange for $500 to Children's Rehab Centre.

How does one remove a stainless steel trough that's been attached to a brick wall several decades? With an angle grinder and some elbow grease of course.

Young says he plans to set up his 'man cave' one day, which will prominently feature troughs from Winnipeg Arena and now Canad Inns Stadium.
