A restaurant that catered for Premier Christy Clark’s luncheon at ACT Arts Centre & Theatre in Maple Ridge was the target of a vandals last night.
Earlier this morning, Big Feast Bistro & Catering in Maple Ridge shared on their Facebook page that the windows to their restaurant were shattered overnight.
They wrote that on Wednesday, they were harassed and called harsh things as they made their way through the large crowd of pro-BCTF protesters that were outside the theatre entrance. A 12-year-old boy, the son of the restaurant operator, was also verbally abused while he was assisting with the catered order.
Prior to the delivery, they were not aware that they were catering for a event that was attended by Christy Clark.
The business hopes the two incidents were not related, but the timing and close proximity makes the incident seem more than coincidental. The theatre is only about two blocks or approximately 300 metres away from the restaurant.
“We want the strike over as much as everyone and hope there are no hard feelings towards us for doing what we do best, feeding Maple Ridge. We will be open for business today as normal and hope this all gets resolved quickly,” said the statement.
Big Feast Bistro & Catering is located at 11920 227th Street (at the intersection of 227th Street and 119th Avenue), just two blocks east of the theatre.
