In any case, I read speculation (maybe on /r/waterloo?) that it had something to do with renovation work related to the brewery.

So, do you think the anonymous posters on reddit are more believable?

If it was just the anonymous posters on Reddit, I'd be skeptical. But I've heard the same rumours since long before Reddit was a thing. A friend that used to work there basically said the same thing too. At this point the number of independent unconnected people that have told me about shitty experiences with the Heuther makes me pretty inclined to believe the rumours, and say they haven't been negotiating in good faith with the Princess.

Tonight is Comedy @ The Registry.  

Quote:Hometown host Nader Mansour offers himself up as comedy fodder with his original take on the middle east and growing up as a Christian Arab.

Quote:Amy Bugg is a stand-up comic with a penchant for inactivity, mild-mannered jokes about pizza, and dogs who look like people. You’re likely to find her featured on comedy stages across the country or at the back of a rural Alberta bar practicing her very questionable karaoke skills.


You’ll remember Amy Bugg’s deadpan delivery from festivals in Calgary, Vancouver and Boston, or from CBC’s “Grown-ups Read Things They Wrote as Kids”. Your mom might have also read her short story in Canadian Living.  

Quote:Nour Hadidi is standup comic and writer. She has appeared at Just For Laughs, Winnipeg Comedy Festival, Kevin Hart’s LOL Network, and CBC’s The Debaters. Last year she filmed a half hour comedy special for Comedy Central in the Middle East. Nour has written for CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes, and Comedy Network’s The Beaverton.

We went to see Comedy @ The Registry on Wednesday.  I was shocked to hear this racist bigot make Islamophobic comments in the last five minutes of the show.  It was not the way to end an otherwise fun and funny evening.  I felt really bad for Nour Hadidi.   Yesterday, CBC took up this story:
