Ok, it wasn't diplomatic, business saavy or polite, but I'm glad this guy said it out loud, and sorry his whole family and all of his employees and suppliers are having to pay for it. Anyone in Banff, Alberta need wholesale gourmet food?

I'll be the voice of dissent and say that unless this guy owned the business 100%, which doesn't seem to be the case, he had no right to torpedo the business with his remarks. It smacks of male entitlement. This would be my opinion regardless of whether I agreed with anything he said. If the family/business owners got together and decided to take a stand on this issue and accept the fallout, that would be another matter. In that case I would hope they would spend some time crafting a better statement. This guy basically blew up their entire business for a mantrum.
