Wild Wings vs. Buffalo Wild Wings - Canadian vs. U.S. chains (split from Ontario board)

I'd rather Anchor Bar open a location here. They would win :-)

But as for Buffalo WWs vs WW, I want BWW to demolish the local copycat, for one important reason: in order to encourage the other American chains (Fuddrucker's, Five Guys, Chick-Fil-A, Carl's Jr., Famous Dave's, etc) to also expand here.

Last thing we need is another invader crash-and-burn (Krispy Kreme, Wolfgang Puck, and Papa John's come to mind) to scare away the foreign competition we badly need. For the xenophobes, keep in mind that they are employing Canadians while here, to build their restaurants and then run them. More American imports, more jobs for us. So on that note I will support the American. Once BWW opens in Oshawa I'll be there. I will never set foot in Wild Wing (or their stupid Pink Burger), on principle.

If the WW owner wins his lawsuit, then that means every Canadian business that wants to avoid competition can do so in the courtroom. Lick's wants to block Fuddruckers? Easy, register "" and claim they own the trademark. This sets a very dangerous precedent.
