(CBC)   After chasing out one restaurant owner who was gay, tiny Manitoba town decides it doesn't like the black owner of a Jamaican takeout. In related news, someone thought it would be a terrific idea to open a jerk place in the middle of a jerk town (pic)   (cbc.ca) divider line 119

If they the jerk store ever runs out, they know where they can go to stock up.

Good Jamaican food is hard to find. I'd welcome anyone willing to give it a try in my neighborhood.

It's rural Manitoba...

What did you expect? "Welcome, sonny"? "Make yourself at home"? "Marry my daughter"? You've got to remember that these are just simple farmers. These are people of the land. The common clay of the new West. You know... morons.

2) birds die
3) only  a moron would drive from Winnipeg to Morris every single day in the winter
4) maybe..just maybe it would be a good idea to think for just a moment about your target market and understand that people wont actually buy your product?
5) Its not people in Morris that are asshats.. its people from the surrounding "communities"

I dunno.  The "nice Canadian" thing is kind of overplayed.  Canadians are nice compared to some other people, but it's not all rainbows and puppies.  I'd be supportive of anything that increased availability of jerk chicken and pork though.

That story had me confused for a second because the owner of the restaurant and the town have the same name.

The small town I'm from on the East Coast is and likely will always be racist as fark. Anyone smart enough to realize the idiocy of racism left as soon as they could. They're not a big fan of homosexuals but they're not too vocal about it... they just hate silently in that case.

Heh - totally missed that.

And Mr. Mayor, maybe your public statements should be calling out and shaming the assholes, instead of just rah-rahing for the owner.

We used to have an AMAZING Jamaican/Caribbean restaurant in Louisville but the owner snorted every cent and they went under. I still hate him for ruining that place.

Canada is full of whites-only-due-to-history communities and most of them prefer to stay that way even with all the We-Love-Everybody propaganda that Canada pushes.
I grew up in one of these towns and every Friday night there was fights between townies and tourists. If there were no city-folk to fight, they fought the boys from the white-only-due-to-histroy community next door. I was a First Nation person who grew up in one of these towns, and the only difference I can see between them and the rez is that Indians don't seem to mind drinking outside. Had a lot of my "white" ex-girlfriends' fathers who drank a half-dozen glasses of rye-and-coke after every work day and this often contributed to violence in the home. But, of course, it's rare for a "white" man to be charged in one of these towns for beating their wife and children.

2013-11-27 01:51:03 PM  
News Flash!  Most restaurants don't succeed.   I'm going to take a wild guess and say Pots N Hands was overpriced and too douchey for the area.  Similarly, I'm going to assume the jerk chicken place tried to be too authentic and didn't take the local taste buds into consideration.  Both these places probably would have thrived in Winnipeg if they had the financing, but they chose the location that was cheaper.  But, what would I know.

The way Canada as a nation treats it's indigenous people is shameful and something that we dearly need to address.  My next statement is in now way intended to lessen this fact or make it seem OK.

The thing is we aren't really all that terrible to anyone but first nations.

I can see your point. It's funny that Canadians seem to support that RCMP are invite-only on most Hutterite colonies (which means their legal system is in-effect), that grassroots Hutterites don't pay income tax, the existence of Jewish courts, and other cultural protections that Settler cultures have in Canada, but they FREAK OUT when First Nations ask for similar cultural protections.

As a transplanted prairie dog to the NS, I found a lot of similarities between the racism expressed towards First Nations people in the west, and African Nova Scotians here in NS.  Racism is everywhere - small town anything.  Spent two years in SE Saskatchewan and was truly disgusted by the attitudes towards visible minorities.  Of course I'm beyond white, so I don't really fit in either.
