No, I am suggesting that people who exhibit either poor taste or poor judgment exist on both sides of the border.

(cali3448893 suggested that Chipotle and Trader Joe's, the two chains he named, are not overrated because people from Canada allegedly flock to his local shopping centre, presumably to eat there and to shop there, respectively: "If their (sic) overrated (sic) people wont (sic) be crossing the border every day to go to our shopping center.")

I'll take Chipotle and Trader Joes over the average garbage Canadian chain restaurant (Swiss Chalet comes to mind with their bland food, likewise with Boston Pizza, Kelsey's, Jack Astor's, etc.) and overpriced Canadian supermarket like Loblaws or Sobeys.

Sorry... Canada has many pluses but dining & retail are not one of them.

I've noticed that you post all kinds of kooky and flat-out incorrect stuff on this forum on a fairly regular basis. How are we supposed to know when you are joking? Why don't you do us all a favour and take a hike.

There are many reasons people are on this forum seemingly 24/7, my excuse is i'm retired and have no life and the kids have their own computers Whats your excuse cali?
Maybe i'll go sit at the local mall food court today with all the other old fogies, maybe i'll bring up this topic, while i'm doing something like this for lunch.
