I was out with my wife and kids with a friend and her 3 kids at Lamoureux Park playing at the splash pad on Sunday mid morning. At around 11:30 the Wheenie on Wheels guy was there. So we bought our kids some hot dogs and other things.
5 minutes later someone comes over says: “Hey come over here, we are having free hot dogs / hamburgers compliments of the Conservative Party”. The Conservative party was having an event giving out free food and drinks.
I was not impressed at all with the freebies being given out. Why? The Wheenie on Wheels I’m sure pays the city a fee / rent to be there at Lamoureux Park. Why would they allow the Conservatives to have a party / bbq and giving out free food when the Wheenie on Wheels guy has to pay for his spot.
This is not right and shame on the city for approving this. This is not right and undermines local business’ trying to make a living. If someone was running something this big it would need to get approved by the city and if they didn’t then shame on the Conservative Party for doing this to a local business trying to make a living. I’m happy we bought our stuff from the Wheenie on Wheels. Again what does the city have to say about this? They could have held this event anywhere else, but they went there.
What do you think?
Thank you kindly,
