New street treats approved for Ontario
Street vendors play an important cultural role in Toronto. Like the swallows returning to Capistrano, the only way Torontonians know it's really spring is when the sausage vendors return to the streets. Now the menu just got bigger!
Street vendors in Ontario will be allowed to expand their menus beyond the usual offering of hot dogs and sausages, the province announced Saturday.
Health Minister George Smitherman said his government has updated food regulations to allow the sale of salads, fruit, hamburgers, pizza, samosas, non-dairy smoothies, burritos, corn on the cob and baked goods, starting Aug. 1.
Smitherman said the new options will reflect the province's multiculturism.
