Canadian Perspective Inc. would like to wish a very happy birthday to Emiliano Mercado del Toro who turned 115 today.

Reasons stated for his long life:

  • “Don’t damaged your body with liquor,”
  • “Don’t smoke”
  • “Eat lots of sugar cane”

Mercado was recruited into the U.S. army in 1918, during the last months of the First World War. He was still in training when the war ended in November 11, 1918. As a young man, Mercado said he worked for 50 cents US a day driving animals loaded with sugar cane to processing centres.

Happy Birthday Emiliano!!
