A plague of lunacy runs through Ontario's restaurant industry

CBC news: Waitress loses job after shaving head for cancer charity.
"I felt like this was a pretty easy thing for me to do to raise money to help people," StaceyFearnall told CBC News on Thursday.

She said she told her bosses what she was planning to do, but when she arrived at work at the restaurant practically bald, she said they sent her home and told her she wasn't welcome back.

"'We'll call it a layoff.' That's what he said," Fearnall said her boss told her. "'Spend the summer with your kids.' I call it losing my job."

Nathaniels owner and chef Dan Hilliard issued a statement late Thursday saying Fearnall did not advise him that she was planning to shave her head.

"Mr. Hilliard had indicated that this is an employer-employee matter and such matters are not to be dealt with in the public," the statement said.
Nathaniel's must be something like Owen Sound's version of a Tim Horton's.
