According to a February 15th article in the National Post, Toronto health authorities have closed down a Chinatown restaurant after a passer-by photographed live rats in the restaurant’s picture window and posted the picture on a Toronto city blog site.
The manager of the Dumpling House restaurant was quoted in the article as saying,
“In this city, rats are a huge problem. It’s a city problem, not a restaurant problem. I don’t think the city has a plan to fight the rat problem.”
Perhaps Toronto should export its rats to Bagan, Myanmar, where they are considered a delicacy.
