Canadian Liberals Protest Opening New Chick-Fil-A Restaurants in Toronto
When a new Chick-fil-A opens in most parts of the country, people celebrate. But when the company announced a new store for Toronto â€“ its first franchised international restaurant â€“ the reception wasnâ€™t as hospitable.
But many of the countryâ€™s left-leaning and LBGT citizens â€“ apparently reacting to the companyâ€™s Christian roots â€“ werenâ€™t excited, according to Fox News.
â€śJust a friendly Canadian reminder that we are a progressive country and have morals and fight for equal rights for all,â€ť one Toronto citizen, Chris Lotts, wrote on Twitter. â€śWe don't want your bigoted and discriminatory business opening anywhere north of the border. #BoycottChickFilA.â€ť...

"Marginally higher" but no stampede: www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/onpolitics/2017/05/02/trump-first-100-days-more-people-moved-to-canada/101196100/ Maybe it tapered off after they realized that is exactly what Trump supporters would want, or the grass really isn't much greener up there.
Reminds me of spoiled children threatening to run away. "Americans are quite astonishingly childlike" â€” columnist in Punch magazine, 1980s issue. Ouch, that hurts.
What is interesting is that Canada is the top choice for Americans to emigrate to. Second is Mexico. Remember how many people said they would move to Canada if Donald Trump became President? I read that Canada was even preparing for the 'onslaught' of applications for citizenship, but then I never read of what finally happened. And, speaking of American emigrants, I wonder what happened to the many who moved to Canada to avoid the draft during the Vietnam War days. Every once in a while, a story about a felon living peacefully in Mexico for decades, finally being arrested and deported to the US. The last story I read was about a guy who was now 76 years old, so the jail time of ten years would be like a life sentence.
The Quiet Christian wrote: Even the reflected light of the Gospel is an anathema to those who hate the Light. It's not like Chick fil A has a tract rack or is overtly Christian in what they display. Sounds like we need to pray fervently for our brothers and sisters in Ontario. Horribly intolerant environment if the locals can't even tolerate Chick fil A. That's where we'll likely have lunch, by the way.
You are absolutely correct.
Also, we must not allow this issue become entertaining as we have in other issues. Tears are necessary. Fervent evangelism will be broadcast through our cities and beyond if we lose our lives for the sake of declaring the Christ, the good news.
We need to forge ahead as one body of warriors; with joy.
They that go forth weeping bearing precious seed shall doubtless come again rejoicing bring their sheaves with them.
We have no joy when we are not broadcasting the only thing that brings fruits of righteousness. It is sin not to follow in the footsteps of the early disciples, apostles, and our Chief Apostle.
So, don't sit amazed at what the wicked do; nor be deceived into becoming entertained by their brazenness.
