— an amazing deaf vendor in a small town

Wolfville, Nova Scotia is a small town of just
4,000 people. Luke Sanford, who is deaf, is
the town’s #1 vendor, selling bags of popcorns
while operating his own Kernel Sanford business.
What is amazing about him is not that he is deaf,
but also uses a wheel chair. Yet he is able to
get around to sell popcorns out of his kiosk.
He’s quite popular among the town residents.

remove the hearing aid from his ear. Sharp
eyes said it was a fake picture!
