John Deighton was the owner of The Globe Saloon which was first in New Westminster (1862-1867) then in the area now known as Gastown. Deighton was called Gassy Jack due to his talkative nature and storytelling which is where Gastown got it's name. There's a statue in honour of him in Maple Tree Square. It's said that he told mill workers they could have all the whisky they want if they help him build his saloon, it went up in 24 hours.
