In response to the CBC interview this morning on Radio One (with Liako), as well as the follow-up web-based article, we want to set the record straight. What was reported by CBC was a greatly distorted quote. What Liako said to the reporter was:"We (Red Rocket Coffee) want to be an anchor in the neighborhood". CBC, by omitting the 2 words "to be", created a gross misrepresentation of Liako's words, suggesting that the TTC yard is the anchor.
We want to assure our community, in which we both reside, that Red Rocket Coffee supports the community and neighbourhood as a whole, livable, functional environment. CBC's implication that we support the addition of another streetcard yard just to increase business is simply untrue.
We hope that you understand our frustration with the the manner in which the subject matter was reported. If you have any further questions or comments, please don't hesitate to come by the store to speak with us in person. At least you'll get the whole story right from the horse's mouth.
Respecting our neighbourhood and community,
Liako & Pam
Red Rocket Coffee
