Keeping an eye on Communist, Totalitarian China, and its influence both globally, and we as Canadians. I have come to the opinion that we are rarely privy to truth regarding the real goal, the agenda of Red China, and it's implications for Canada [and North America as a whole]. No more can we rely on our media as more and more information on China is actively being swept under the carpet - not for consumption.

China restaurant apologizes for weighing customers
China restaurant apologizesfor weighing customers
Aug 15 2020
A restaurant in central China has apologised for encouraging diners to weigh themselves and then order food accordingly.
The policy was introduced after a national campaign against food waste was launched.
The beef restaurant in the city of Changsha placed two large scales at its entrance this week.
It then asked diners to enter their measurements into an app that would then suggest menu items accordingly.
Signs reading "be thrifty and diligent, promote empty plates" and "operation empty plate" were pinned up.
Hashtags about the restaurant have been viewed more than 300 million times on the social platform Weibo.
The restaurant said it was "deeply sorry" for its interpretation of the national "Clean Plate Campaign".
"Our original intentions were to advocate stopping waste and ordering food in a healthy way. We never forced customers to weigh themselves," it said in an apology posted online.
President Xi Jinping ignited the campaign this week, calling the levels of national food wastage "shocking and distressing".
Following Mr Xi's message, the Wuhan Catering Industry Association urged restaurants in the city to limit the number of dishes served to diners - implementing a system where groups have to order one dish fewer than the number of diners.
State TV also criticized live-streamers who filmed themselves eating large amounts of food.
