Through a link on their site I’ve become aware of a website called The Kids of Johnny Canuck which has some information on the late Leo Bachle aka Les Barker who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in our inaugural year, 2005. Their plea:
Leo Bachle (aka Les Barker), the creator of the Johnny Canuck comics, comedian, and ladies man travelled the world entertaining audiences. His charm seduced women, and now, after his death, his family discovers a legacy of children. Twelve children with eight different women, ranging in age from 44 to 66, have been confirmed as his. Some of the children continue the search for their unknown brothers and sisters.
