Well, this is new to me, land claims and native rights being used as a means to open a hamburger stand. OK, the backstory is here.
As far as I can tell from reading the articles (Hamilton Spectator, Dunnville Chronicle cd989.com) someone is building an unlicensed hamburger shack in Caledonia. The hamburger stand isn’t connected to the electric grid and apparently doesn’t plan on paying taxes either, and as a consequence there are a bunch of people who are rather annoyed. And while it’s only about 100 km from Caledonia to Toronto, it did take a full 21 days for the news to get there (the reason I know about it, is because my friend Jordan Timm pointed out a Macleans blog post about the conflict – Thanks Jordan).
Does anyone know if the hamburgers are any good?
Personally I love how Kaz Novak absolutely had to get a teepee in the picture to validate that the dispute was on native land!
