Would you like social justice fries with that?

It’s a nightmare that just won’t end — City Hall’s spectacularly over budget and long overdue revitalization of Nathan Phillips Square.

In the latest chapter reported by my Sun colleague Don Peat, city staff want councillors to spend $100,000 of our money on a “food service adviser.”

His or her job would be to advise the city on establishing a “social enterprise food service operation” at two City Hall restaurants…

    That’s a job no white male need apply for, unless gay or transgendered.

    same foolishness in Vancouver all city owned restaurants(in civic parks) have to be vetted by a political commissar and food trucks are regulated by the same political committee to ensure latest food fad items are foisted on the public rather than allowing public choice to decide. tofu chips anyone?

      As much as I do eat a healthy diet, and tofu is a (tiny) part of it, I demand the freedom to eat as many McDonald fries, and if they’re fried in the beef fat, all the better. I want my bacon, cronuts, mayo and tons of butter. Municipal government should stick to their mandates, for which WE pay them, and should not, NOT, dictate me what I eat, when I eat out.

        I would like the choice to eat fries fried in beef tallow, the abortion-loving vegans don’t want to give me that right to choose.

          I make my own at home.

        My first job dishwashing was not that great but it did have its perks.
        After cleaning the deep fryer the smell of the new tallow melting as is came up to temperature was awesome.
        Always reminded me of roast beef dinners on Sunday at my grandmother’s house.

  • Just wait till the “social enterprise food service operation” manager requires only free range, vegan burgers.

    This is government at its best.

    But I thought City Hall had already sold out to the totalitarian horde by giving space to 100% halal Hero Certified Burgers.

    how about they spend money on pumping nerve gas into the next council meeting

    now that would be social justice

    I missed the part when city governments’ mandate was extended far beyond garbage collection, providing safe streets, working sewers, lighting and water. Oh, sorry I forgot about the UN’s Agenda 21 which bypasses sovereign national governments.
