Leaving a bad taste in their mouths?

British Columbia Food and Restaurant Association president Ian Tostenson recently told The Vancouver Sun the government's tougher anti-drinking laws have "dramatically" reduced business at drinking establishments. This, at a time when the restaurant industry is already been buffeted by the harmonized sales tax. So it may seem cold comfort that the Liberals - the party responsible for all of those changes - are encouraging biennial convention delegates to "explore the culinary delights offered by many of Penticton and Summerland's most popular eateries." This, as part of a "partnership" with those restaurants. Fancy that!
