TORONTO – A Caledonia, Ont., activist has offered to buy Premier Kathleen Wynne a meal from a Native burger shack ordered closed by local public health authorities.
Christine McHale, wife of well-known activist Gary McHale, of Canadian Advocates for Charter Equality (CanACE), said Monday that the provincial government is not taking action against a small restaurant that has set up shop on its land and continues to operate despite the close order.
The Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit issued a statement earlier this month to inform the public that the small stand has spotty electricity, no potable water and no staff hand-washing station.
"Perhaps Premier Wynne or (Transportation and Infrastructure) Minister Glen Murray don't really think there is a food safety issue," McHale said. "If that's the case, then I am inviting them to Caledonia to come and get a burger and some fries at this place where health codes are violated, orders to close are ignored ... I will even treat them."
