And here I am today having to do this instead of being in my kitchen cooking for my customers!
And here I am having to play the villain! Yes the villain! Because for a lot of you at home and this government, fighting for our businesses is illegal and wrong.
A lot of people are affected by these closures, a lot of hardworking people with families and a lot of us that also support their families back at home in other countries.
We are an altruistic bunch of people by trade, we cook, we serve and we love it! We always take care of other people and we also did throughout this pandemic by following extensive protocols., now apparently not even this enough?
And so we ask our leaders: find another way to solve this problem and leave small businesses alone.
KEEP US OPEN
We are asking everyone here and in our hometown to revoke these latest restrictions and to ask our government to find a different way to protect us from this virus.
We are not protesting against the COVID problem, we are protesting against the solutions taken that we believe they are hurting people more than the problem itself.
