BK Given Thumbs Down in St. John’s


St. John’s, N.L. — A group of St. John’s, N.L., residents are hoping to block the opening of a Burger King in an east-end neighbourhood, according to CBC News.

Although, the company bosses promise to create more than 100 jobs, area residents are worried the fast-food joint and drive-thru will smell and create litter at the Irving service station in which it would be attached.

A report on the building proposal is set to go before council. “The report is then tabled at a council meeting and at that time council will vote either to accept or reject the discretionary use in a commercial neighborhood zone,” Councillor Frank Galgay is quoted as saying by CBC News.
