Balmoral Verses McDonalds

Balmoral, a little suburban in Auckland is challenging the giant McDonald's Restaurant. McDonalds want to build a mega 24/7 drive-thru in the neighbourhood. They managed to get a resource consent hearing date to be set in June. This has the support of the previous Prime Minister, Helen Clark.
This reminds me of when New Zealand stood up and said NO to nuclear power.

Good on the people of Balmoral to stand up against this "bad food" producing multinational, who uses all the tricks in the trade to look good.

That is a beautiful thing to read! THe less fast food, the less problems. Where I live i can see McD's out my window and it sucks!
