    Default Calgary bakery and restaurant fined

    Unsafe food leads to fines

    By KEVIN MARTIN, CALGARY SUN

    Consumers want food that not only tastes good, but is safe to eat, a Calgary judge said yesterday in fining a Chinatown bakery and two of its directors. "People ought to feel secure when they go to a restaurant that the food is palatable and safe to consume," provincial court Judge William Pepler said.

    Diamond Bakery Company, and Henry Chan and Duong Quong Ho each pleaded guilty to three separate charges under the Public Health Act.

    The pleas followed similar admissions by Calgary Court Restaurant of violating the provincial statute, but Pepler said he wanted to hear from owner Winnie Wai-Man Chan before levelling any fines.

    Prosecutor Rob O'Neill said Diamond Bakery was selling perishable food items -- such as meat-filled buns -- at its 3 Ave. S.E. store at unsafe temperatures.

    "They're basically just standing Petri dishes," O'Neill said outside court.

    Chan and Ho were each handed fines and surcharges of $2,760, while the bakery must pay $1,380.

    In a separate case Calgary Court, on 2 Ave. S.E., admitted four charges under the PHA.

    O'Neill told Pepler health inspectors found unsafe conditions in the restaurants including cockroaches in an upstairs storage room and flies in the basement.

    The bakery one isn't bad, I keep my BBQ pork buns at room temperature for up to a week at home. Calgary court is a bit scarier... cockroaches and flies... eww.

    I hope that sate chicken is sitting in properly stored temperatures. Not that it would stop me if it wasn't!

    Im sure alot of Chinatown establishments are like that. I saw mice in the restaurant under the cultural centre. And I saw this on three different occassions. Im pretty sure the burrow or nest is in the storage closet of the mens washroom.

    Don't most Chinese bakeries keep the meat-filled buns at room temperature?

    I thought that Calgary Court was fined b/c the chef jizzed on some old ladies food? I guess that's just an urban myth...like the washrooms.

    Yea, but it must be BAD for them to get busted. I've worked restaurants before, and yes they're pretty nasty inside, but to get busted and fined must be pretty damn harsh.

    I heard about that too!

    I also heard that there was mouse crap in this guy's beef brisket..

    And the washroom there is haunted, I get such an eerie feeling when I go. I haven't gone in years tho....

    When it comes to Chinatown, I'm on a 'don't ask don't tell' policy. I'd rather just not know!

    Don't worry, there's enough salt and MSG in the food to keep it nice for a long time even at room temp, haha

    hmm... yummy...
    I don't think anyone here is surprised...


    hee hee hee, what's up with all the haunted stories of chinatown? I've heard so many stories of different places that are haunted, such as the washrooms at Calgary court, the back alley around Dessert House, & also the Sakana Grill building...

    What's the Calgary Court? the only bakery i've ever been to in Chinatown is the one under Happy Valley.. I don't go to Chinatown often, except when I get my haircut at Hair City..
