Behemoths Destroy Culture


Dharm Makwana of 24 Hours got feedback from Main Street locals about Tim Horton’s opening right in the heart of the strip’s funky hipster independent coffee scene.

I am very pro free enterprise, but when it comes to preserving a neighbourhood’s culture and feel, sometimes certain brands should be BANNED, and this is a perfect example.

Jasper, AB doesn’t allow big chains anywhere in the town – to preserve the park’s cozy atmosphere, and Vancouver has turned down several applications from Wal-Mart opening within the city limits.

I hope the Main St. locals rise up and fight to defend their hood’s vibe.  Companies should have to pass a cool factor test before opening here.
