Mayor Rob Ford

“Let them sell what they want. I wouldn’t restrict it to just hot dogs and hamburgers. If they want to sell something else, that’s fine.”

    Why not– if it’s sanitary? In Asia you have fruit vendors who cut up delicious chunks of pineapple, watermelon and cantloupe, bag them and give you a small, sharp stick to eat them with.

    The City of Toronto has three kinds of “hot dogs”…….a.)street vendors;b.)dogs left unattended in a
    vehicle, with the windows rolled up tighter than a drum; c.)politicians…..who bark like dogs and give no constructive contributions to the betterment of the city they supposedly are there to serve.
    Firstly…we are in the year 2012, rather than being the “hot dog capital of Canada” one would think
    the City of Toronto would have more to offer than the basic “hot dog”. In the mosaic of integrated
    policies and bylaws, regulations, health standards etc.,etc. including forking out a ton of money before even getting started.Could we not have it simplified. Go to the TOP dog, (otherwise known as the Dept. Of Health)? Propose it to Council who passes the street vendors idea….and just maybe a new menu hatches that individuals passing by may just want to buy and taste, rather than the good ole “hot dog”….that would be to simpliefied.

    I don’t like Toronto street hot dogs. They always slice them up and burn them. I prefer Nathan’s New York style red hots. But if they were sold here they would probably slice them up and burn them as well.
