If you feel like Quinte West lacks community participation there might be good reason. While beer & fast food are sadly a staple of our town’s culture. We have to ask, “Should we be changing this?”
Should our town really celebrate the people most capable of over stuffing themselves with food? Meanwhile we have people struggling to take care of themselves in town. It really stands to reason we need more celebrations of athleticism & less emphasis on gluttony. What is there to celebrate about a food consumption contest?
The Bay of Quinte culture requires a lot of change. The first thing we can do is criticize what is happening. The next steps are to have public discussions, engage public figures & continuous research. Do you think this spectacle is needless? Leave a comment or email me at Ashtonderoy@gmail.com
