Stopping small children from selling worms? WTF?
A Cornwall family is defying a city order to stop two kids from selling worms on their front lawn.
Clayton, 8, and Kristopher Cadieux, 10, started their business last summer, digging up worms and selling them as bait for $2.50 per dozen.
But after a complaint from a neighbour, the brothers received a note from the city saying they were breaking a bylaw and had to shut down their business.
Busy-body neighbour; busy-body municipal government.
Good on them, and their parents, for their defiance.
Left-liberal commie nanny/police state bastards…
In Ontario, it’s now illegal to smoke at children’s playgrounds, publicly owned sports fields and restaurant and bar patios, changes that took effect New Year’s Day.
As well, tobacco cannot be legally sold on university and college campuses.
Which simply punishes convenience stores on campuses, driving the trade to neighbouring off-campus stores, giving them a competitive edge; won’t decrease smoking one iota.
Meaning the government will still get their tax revenues, unless of course more people buy their tobacco in bulk from native reserves…
