The man's past aside ( by the way, with not knowing anything about where he is at in terms of rehabilitation, judgement is not ours to make either way.  We all answer to a higher power and it is that higher power who will ultimately reign justice and judgement.   That said - victims may forgive but they never forget -  nor is welcoming perpetrators in with open arms in any way realisitc or fair)
I wouldn't go so far as to say that this community is progressive in terms of patronizing a business becuase it doesn't follow a sustainable and green philosophy.  If your product is good, affordable, and people like it, customers will patronize you.  Personal opinion or approval would be the bigger issue for success I feel in this case.  Thus, if his business is to succeed, An open apology/sign of remorse and rehabilitation would go a long way.   with a Farmers market right next door, im sure working soem local produce in wouldn't hurt - unless its pricey.  I for one wouldn't mind not havign to travel 8-17 miles to The Mix, or 158 main, or Tim's place, or Our House to get breakfast.

Just wondering as I'd like to pay my Respects.

Sad news.  Roger was pivotal in keeping the Soccer Club alive and running for a number of years.  I've only know him to be kind, respectful, courteous and helpful.  This is a loss for the community.

Perhaps there's a certain 'shift' of workers that are good at showing a facade of integrity and ethics to the owners, but are actually the opposite.   Having worked in the food industry for both coporate giants and 4 diamond establishments, i can tell you good businesses take constructive criticism and complaints seriously and as opportunities to improve.  They break down the complaint and take key factors into consideration.

Important information to provide in comment cards, is Date, Time, where you were seated and what your server's name was, as well as exact verbiage used by staff.  This allows management to identify who the staff were at the time of the complaint so as to follow-up and addres appropraitely.  It also affords them some insight into what's is fact and what is embellishment of the facts...... a report of a server talking loudly, rudely, and frequently about the establishment, when all other criticisms have been that sever is absent, quiet, and personalitiless..... helps determine the validity of complaints... as some folks look for issues solely for comped meals.

Not saying your friends partake in this act Mary, but i am saying certain information is vital for management to properly address the issue with the right staff.

I recently had a business meeting there.  We stayed for 2 hours in the side room.  The server, checked in several times with us, refilling coffees, waters and clearing whatever she could.  Even after we had had our fill of coffee and didn't need anything else she Still checked back a fe wmore times citing she didn't want us to feel forgotten.

I agree Customer service is important as is clearly explained policies.  Cooks egos, inconsistentcy, and a servers unprofessional and selfish excuse for non-service MAY not be the establishments intentions... in fact they may not even be aware.  My dealings with the new owners has been positive.  They genuinely seem to want to succeed and have good intentions.... unfortunately their inexperience may allow some of these inconsistencies and inadequacies.  A good measure of a business owner is not issues or problems with their product/service... it is how they handle the issue and rectify it. 

I suggest giving them a civil opportunity to ackowledge a complaint or criticisim and allow them a chance to respond and rectify.  This is what any of us would hope for if the roles were reversed.

WHat should be done if plastics and other refuse are beign burned ( obviously illegally as they wouldn't be able to obtain a permit to burn them)?  is there a fine or citation that can be issued?  Are these tracked somewhere so repeat situations can be remedied with action beyond citations?.
