(Jul. 28/14) As food trucks make inroads in the Atlantic region, Restaurants Canada is weighing in on the debate. We were recently involved in the development of new food truck bylaws in Halifax, Wolfville and Charlottetown.
Restaurants Canada supports expansion of the food truck industry, but not at the expense of brick-and-mortar restaurants that operate year-round and pay property taxes and fees. We have asked municipalities to ensure food trucks follow the same rules as restaurants, and to create a significant buffer between existing restaurants and places where food trucks can locate.
