bpNichol?

does anyone have any idea what the deal is with this street name?

i’ve noticed these signs on huron street behind robarts library, as well as on spadina just south of bloor. looks like someone got a bit creative.

update: google saves the day. apparently bpNichol was a respected canadian poet. shows what i know about “culture”. funny, i was going to note that the street name made me think of ee cummings, so i guess i was on the right track.
