Tofino council looks at banning chain stores

March 9th, 2010 · 30 Comments

Just spotted this item (by brilliant Langara journalism grad!!) on the Sun’s website, about Tofino looking at disallowing chains like Tim Horton’s, Starbucks and McD’s. I’ve been wondering when some town in B.C. would do that.

One of my favourite places that I’ve visited in my travels the last few years is Telluride, because they don’t allow any chains. (Though tragically they do allow multi-millionaires to build ginormous third or fourth vacation homes there.) And it’s why Silver Star is one of my favourite ski resorts, where you get to eat in quirky places that are resolutely home-grown.
