Now brought to you by Scout Magazine.

What an excellent chat. For this one we were very thrilled to have on the President and CEO of the BC Restaurants And Food Services Association, Ian Tostenson, to talk about what his group has done to help the restaurant community during the pandemic. As someone who is at the forefront of communication with the government, Tostenson has a unique perspective and influence over small and large issues regarding restaurant policy and aid. We wanted to learn more of how things get done, what his association aims to do moving forward, his own thoughts on the Corduroy saga from a few weeks back and much much more.

Mickey is back and it definitely makes for one of our best episodes. We run through plenty, and we're certain you'll enjoy it.
