There's best-before dates, and expiry dates.
In Canada (or BC at least), the best-before date system is used. After the best-before date, the food is still perfectly edible, it's just not super fresh anymore.
An expiry date is a different story. Once it's close or past the date, the food is considered unsafe to eat - toss it out.

So when you guys do the sniff-test for food past its best before date, it's not like you're serving people garbage. You're just giving them "less fresh" food.

I'll vouch for bus passes at T&T too. A lady behind the counter once sold my grandma a concession pass for the PREVIOUS MONTH. Obviously she pocketed the money and screwed my grandma over who unfortunately can't read english.

Read again, I'm not specifically saying T&T only. There's more supermarket than T&T !!

So, tell me, how come you guys gave out orders to remove the expired date on expired foods? Lets say, Tin Can Cookies from Hong Kong or China ? So, everytime I buy from T&T, I'm funding your new M3 mods eh !

haha you're a funny guy
1st of all, im just trying to find out whats going on in your post, cuz i asked my dad about it and he's unaware of the situation, cuz obviously, that's not the right thing to do.

2nd of all, my parents may or may not be loaded, but if you know me personally, i've been funding myself since i was 19 and i live on my own so dont even go there to assume that i'm "powered by mom"

im just trying to help to get to the bottom of it so it wont happen, cuz it shouldn't.

That's good to hear !
Actually, the cow's stomach thing is from another supermarket (a famous Viet oriented supermarket based in Vancouver) and the water soaked shrimps is from the same place. However, T&T doesn't soak them, the source soak them. This happens at the warehouse before they arrive at T&T.

If you need more source, check the snack from T&T, mainly the dry stock that got their expired date removed.

I didn't even try to say your powered by mom, rest assured !! I know who you are, and I believe we met from nasioc before, but u don't know who I am. Just that you don't have to say the whole story about your dad as being the next person beside the owner !
I don't go around and tell people that my mom is retired but I drove a Ferrari to revscene meets. So, you think I'm powered by mom? Right ! Don't get me wrong, if you are really gonna get your dad to fix the problem at your business, that is great, i really appreciate it and I'll not shit about T&T. But if you're just trying to tell me that your dad's the next person beside the owner. Then, you know....

haha alright i guess its just a misunderstanding, and no i dont go around telling people that, i just wanted to clear up any bad names you might've given people so im just explaining where MY source is coming from to prove that its reliable. but yes i will def tell him to look into it cuz he was quite shocked when i told him about it.

Sooo who are you

I think you fail to see your own argument here. You were saying how so and so installer over in Toronto does it for xx amount. And like I already stated, the market is slightly different everywhere. How come insurance is more expensive in Ontario? How come bodyshops charge more?

London drugs DSC

The sad part is no matter what I can't think of anything bad. Hell I've been working there for 4 years now and I have yet to see one rat!

Nightclub

-COMMON SENSE. Never put a lime directly in your drink. I don't even need to explain it.
-The reason why drink prices are so high in some establishments is because insurance om nomnomnom's a clubs profits. Forceful removal insurance and personal insuranceis a big one. And only idiots are to blame who sue the club for cutting their foot on broken glass (why would you take your shoes off in a club in the first place) and winning, or breaking a glass and stabbing someone and then win a case against the club because the bouncers didn't get there fast enough.

I'm not saying his is right or wrong, but to say insurance is more expensive in Ontario is a blanket statement. I bet if you were 50 and had a clean driving record for the past 20 years and insured 4 cars at one time, total cost of insurance will be lower than if you were to insure the same cars through ICBC.
Bodyshops charge more because of supply and demand, and the same goes with alarm installs.
OD is providing a service, and if people felt he was overcharging his business will slow down or people will stop going to him. But if his installs were world class, winning awards, then he can charge a little higher. Right now, the market price for compustar installs is what it is, which is higher than Toronto.

:P what a numbskull,

1) insurance, Ont. has private insurance. thus companies set thr own chrage. they have right to refuse to insure somebody. and insurance goes up even if ur not at fault.
BC is public insurance, rates dont go up if u r not at fault. and u get 5% discout upto 45% every year if u are accident free.

DO some research before u speak out of ur ass


2) Body shops are same $ if not cheaper. in Toronto.

u know i seriously doubt that u lived in toronto, otherwise u will not make stupid comments like this. i lived in toronto for about 13 years.

"SumAznGuy" is correct. dnot make statements u dont know nothing about.

A new car built by [company] leaves somewhere traveling at 100km/h. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, they don't do one.

certain cdma phone companies chrage, $ to change phone/devices. thats a bogus chrage. i think most people know that already

that same compnay decided to chrage bb user a extra service charge, thinking that other compnaies will follow them, the other companies didnt follow, they dropped that fee

phone company are in competition, but usually chat with one another when setting up plans and rate. specially Telus and Bell.

both of them are setting up GSM networks..

When I used to work as a cook up at Grouse mountain we would use moldy burger buns.
The buns comes in packages of 6-12, sometimes there would be a few moldy ones in the package. We would throw the moldy ones out and use the good ones.
And there is rats all over the place.
