That was a case where people had their say and the Ketchup and Mustard that everyone seems to love will continue to be shelved.
The conversation recently caught fire again, when restaurant chain A&W Canada endorsed the Ketchup on Tuesday, March 29 , saying they will serve it at all of their locations in the country.
Frankly this kind of conversation has gotten quite silly, being that one of the major conversations in our nation is about a condiment.
The definition of a condiment is something that adds flavour, so by that fact should this conversation not just be nothing more than a side note in national news.
Of course, this is not to discourage people who want to affect change and keep their favourites around. Everyone has a right to their own voice and to use it as they please. But with political decisions being made daily by all levels of government, the question remains how this type of conversation has exploded in the nation.
This sounds a lot like a publicity stunt for the company, and it has worked, drawing interest in the product and increasing sales of something that Loblaws said was waning in demand.
If people in a developing country, that hope for just a little food, knew that one of our bigger decisions was what type of Ketchup or Mustard we were using, they would most certainly scoff at us.
