Torontonians and Canadians who publicly decried the individuals who made these threats and, in fact, there is a successful restaurateur who is offering to help re-open the restaurant. As a Canadian, I’m willing to accept lower economic growth in the name of environmental stewardship. Economic growth has been artificially inflated for the last 2 centuries because the cost to our environment, or future costs on health and people, have been ignored. We have enough on this planet to make due, but not grow indefinitely. You cannot grow infinitely on finite resources. We most certainly need an environment to live in, air to breathe, water to drink, food to eat and shelter from the elements. Indigenous people lived without an economy as such.
