They could avoid get infected or infecting other fellow workers by simply put on a mouth piece. Look how many jobs are lost because of this. Pure stupidity. Reply Well it is time to get back to work.

They will be selling fast. I still don't see much potatoes at stores. Reply Vodka Reply Has President Trump lost his mind to tell people to injest poisons like Chrorox and other such products. OMG! The man has lost it. The hospitals will be busier than ever before because of the boondoggle insanity that Trump came out with. If Trump cannot think before he talks then he should resign. The pressure must be too much for him to handle these days. There are times that I roar with laughter at what Trump comes out with but not this time the man has really lost it. Reply Make potato flour. Reply Of course this is used to manufacture a food crisis, they've been pushing plant based propaganda funded by Bill Gates for the past few years.

Cargill doesn't employ canadians! Hey want the real story…visit RebelNews! Reply Donate the overage to non profits to feed the homeless and families in need. Reply Firstly, people eating less french fries would negatively effect potato farmers, this is true. However, it's not like this is happening in some void, its not like people are eating NOTHING in the place of fries, people are just eating other crap. This isn't a sign of economic doom, just shifting markets, like usual. Basically, it might be bad for potato farmers, but their loss is likely a boon for another food industry. Secondly, your complaining about wasting food? REALLY? Don't we literally waist like 2.2 million tons of food every year in Canada from grocery store alone? Are you really going to complain now that it might go up another 10-15%? -_-; News: 'Because people will avidly watch literal paint dry on our networks in hopes they can feel even slightly safer as a result.' Reply The Billions of people who have starved to death prematurely over the past thirty years, mostly colored persons; have a message for you over eating demons. What goes around today will come around tomorrow, language cannot express your inhumane uncompassionate lives; food mountains in a wanting world.
