Restaurateurs help drive-thru ban protest

News ServicesJune 20, 2009

Fast-food restaurant owners in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island are trying to prevent local politicians from banning drive-thrus.

Fast-food chain employers and employees were passing out flyers to alert their customers of the Town of Comox’s potential ban on future drive-thrus.

"We would really like to encourage our customers and the public to call the councillors . . . and let them know that they are absolutely not in favour of the drive-thru ban," said John Brocklehurst, owner of three area Tim Hortons.

"There is no scientific evidence to say that it’s a good idea."

“Climate policy is characterized by the habituation of low expectations and a culture of failure. There is an urgent need to understand global warming and the tipping points for dangerous impacts that we have already crossed as a sustainability emergency that takes us beyond the politics of failure-inducing compromise. We are now in a race between climate tipping points and political tipping points.”
