Chick-fil-A announces controversial arrival in Toronto

Chick-fil-A is one of the fastest growing fast-food franchises in the US. So it is not surprising that the chain announced it will be opening a store in Toronto, Canada’s largest city, in 2019. It hopes to have upwards of 20 franchises set up in the Greater Toronto Area by 2024. Chick-fil-A’s arrival in Toronto is proving controversial as those on the left unleash their outrage.

The restaurant has Bible verses printed on its cups; It’s owned by Christians who believe in traditional Christian values on marriage; and are not afraid to express these views.

Many people were injured and at this time, two have died, a girl and a young woman. The alleged killer, Faisal Hussain, was a Muslim from a Pakistani immigrant family.

Did City of Toronto taxpayers pay for Jihadi mural?

TORONTO, CANADA: City taxpayers in Toronto are up in arms after discovering their taxes paid for a mural which even muslims say depicts a Jihadi war cry. Jihad is a holy war which is considered the sacred duty of muslims and is the basis of much of the conflict with Muslim extremists today. The two-storey mural is located on a building housing a mosque. Toronto city hall contributed $17,000 to the project initiated by a woman’s immigration group in the city. The controversy surrounds the large Arabic words which quote a verse from the Qur’an (chapter 61:13). The verse speaks of Allah’s blessing and promise of victory over the infidels.
