Historic Plaques of Toronto - May 15, 2006, Queen St West

I was walking home today along Queen and just a few stores east of Bathurst I saw this plaque. I can't really say this is a historical plaque and have no idea why it was paced here. I did a search and came up with nothing. As I walked home I looked for more plaques but never noticed any more.

It says:

May 15, 2006
00:20 – 00:26 / 00:34
He held a small Canadian flag over his head and loudly sang “Oh say can you see, by the dawns early light..” His voice faltered and his friend carried on down the street.
Queen Street Toronto Tobacco Shop Downtown

Sounds to me like alcohol or drugs may have been involved.

Look at the bottom left of the Falafel Shop. That's where the plaque is. It couldn't be in a much more awkward spot.
