This piece started out as a tribute to Jolly Olde England (my grandfather’s home country) and the unhealthy but (sometimes) delicious dining traditions that our ancestors brought to Canada from the British Empire. But after the events of June 2016, I turned a little left with this piece. Traditions are great, and they’re the fabric of our cultures, but clinging to them against reason and with a mean-spirited bigotry is just plain stupid. And apart from that, fish and chips really aren’t all that good for you….
