Canada Day Free Buffet for Citizens at Mandarin Buffet Triggers Morons

Now no one gets to eat free.

I'm left leaning but with CLASSIC Liberal values. Not this neo-lib white people are evil and pander to every entitled cockbag horseshit.

Even in Burma/Myanmar this shit never ceases to amaze me. Also many of the virtue signallers are idiotic entitled douchebags.

Don't get me wrong, I think Mandarin's food is shit, and I wouldn't go anyways.. but if this upset me, instead of bitching in twitter and whipping up the morons into a frenzy till the restaurant capitulated, I would just not go.

Now its ruined for everyone.

You literally cannot please everyone. This used to be an understood statement.

When someone used to complain about stuff like this (rarely) people just ignored it. Now if you don't agree or pander the news media will DOX you.

The media is the enemy.

If Flett or a hypothetical client of his were refused the promotion because they were unable to produce proof of Canadian citizenship, he said he'd seek damages for the value of the offer, as well as damages for injury, hurt feelings and loss of dignity.

Flett is not convinced someone would have to be denied the freebie in order to pursue the matter as just communicating such a promotion may be discriminatory.
This is just...sad. I can't imagine ever pursuing a lawsuit because of "hurt feelings", let alone attempt to claim any sort of injury because of being unable to participate in an offer like this.

This is just pathetic.

Everyone needs a big fat dose of humility. There's a reason why it's such a valued virtue in classic philosophy.

Damages for hurt feelings and loss of dignity. For going to an event and asking for something when you know what the result will be.

I am going to start asking super models to marry me. Especially married ones. Then when they turn me down, if the above is correct, I can sue for injury, hurt feelings, and loss of dignity.
