Chick-fil-A’s Canadian expansion triggers ignorance across border, threats of bricks and dog poop

Chick-fil-A announced plans for its first restaurants outside the United States last week, having set its sights on Toronto.

And unhinged left-wing LGBT activists have set their sights on protesting this news.

“Toronto is a great city – with diverse and caring people, a vibrant restaurant culture and a deep talent pool,” said Tim Tassopoulos president and chief operating officer of Chick-fil-A, according to Chick-fil-A’s press release. “These characteristics align perfectly with Chick-fil-A’s focus on community giving, delivering a premium restaurant experience and working with passionate people who can grow with our company.”

Of course, with Canada being home to more than its share of progressive social justice warriors, the selection of Toronto makes for an interesting choice — even if logistics do work.

Adding to the curious choice, Toronto was named the third most LGBT-friendly city in the world last year in a survey conducted by Nestpick, an aggregator website for furnished apartments.

But the company that came under fire from the left because of the Christian beliefs of it’s late founder, S. Truett Cathy, is not deterred, saying online it plans anywhere from 10 to 20 locations in Toronto.

Chick-fil-A never refused service to gay patrons, nor did it exhibit discrimination in the work place. The angst on the left is prompted by Cathy’s religious beliefs, which included the belief that — egad! — marriage is between a man and a woman.

Cathy passed away in 2014, but LGBT activists continue to unfairly malign Chick-fil-A, as seen in the reaction from “tolerant” liberals to the expansion news.

Including this gem: “Chick-Fil-A is opening a location in Toronto. Ima go throw the first brick.”

Here’s a quick sampling of other responses from social media users pushing a false political narrative and already calling for a boycott.

Not that rational minded Cannucks are not pumped over the news that they’ll soon be consuming delicious chicken sandwiches.
