April 5 Dinner with a View…Of the Rich

What does $550 get you in Toronto you ask? The creators of a pop-up restaurant have the answer. A chichi dinner for 4 under the Gardiner in a little heated dome designed to look like a terrarium and furnished for comfort. They call it “Dinner with a View.

What sort of view you ask? Well, not of the homeless camp, obviously. The City demolished that and evicted the people living there two weeks ago, remember?

What are we going to do it about you ask? You ask a lot of questions, but we’ll tell you. We’re inviting you to join us for a free 3-course dinner under the Gardiner.

Bring your noisemakers and email us your music requests ( While you’re at it, email Mayor Tory ( and tell him we need adequate shelters and rent-geared-to-income housing.

Eat near to former homeless camps occupied by “new” wealthier residents!
