Behemoths Destroy Culture

by


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.
