It seems that Liberal leadership candidate Ken Dryden can't find a "hamburger he likes in all of Canada."
According to the article, this leadership race is hard on him. Back in the good old days, when he was goaltending for the Canadiens and even when the Liberals were in power, "his people would call ahead to find the best burger and milkshake places."
"..The only place that satisfies his palate these days is south of the border at Mr. Bartley's Burger Cottage in the Boston area..."
Raphael goes on to describe how Dryden co-hosted his Toronto constituency BBQ with Ontario MPP Monte Kwinter, but didn't eat a thing. His wife apparently is a gourmet cook, which may partially account for his demanding palate.
But I have to ask you, how is a man who can't even enjoy a good old Harvey's or Wendy's going to relate to the common folk if he is party leader or worse yet, Prime Minister? I mean that would be as bad as being born with a silver spoon in your mouth and owning a huge shipping company, wouldn't it?
Canada's burgers aren't good enough for you Ken? Come on! Choke one down. Pretend you're on Survivor!

Ironically, I just stumbled across this post from yesterday, by A BCer in Toronto! Pics and lots of links. I could have saved myself a lot of typing if I had found that first!
