Absolutely incorrect. Please don't repeat heresay or rumours and report them as fact.

There is no marketing board for eggs. There is no marketing board for chicken. There is no marketing board for cheese, or ice cream, or yogurt, or any number of products *derived* from milk. There are no "Government" anything for these products.
A simple Google search finds hundreds of articles which disprove everything that you say. There is no marketing board for eggs?? Read this:

Or better still don't bother since you're obviously a shill for some Canadian Marketing Board or organization. The claim that Canadian dairy products and the like is superior to US products is nonsense. Open the border and let Canadians decide for themselves.

If KFC is selling nugget sized chicken they should sell nuggets and be done with it already instead of messing people around.

Was in Florida two weeks ago and stopped at a KFC: huge pieces compared to here, could barely finish a 3 pc meal. As usual we're getting the short end of the stick...

I thought it was from the minimum wage change in Ontario, but my friend from Alberta said they changed there too.
I remember when I was a kid I'd get KFC on mothers day. They were HUGE. I think they must have shrunk multiple times. Before the recent change, the chicken pieces weren't that big. Still half the size of Popeyes chicken, especially the breast meat.

Why don't people try the fried chicken at grocery stores (Loblaws, RCSS, etc)? They're pretty cheap normally and decent size
Loblaws and RCSS chicken is not deep fried instead it is baked just like Tim's chicken......

I think the chicken is “broasted” which means deep fried under pressure.

if kfc hasn't backed down from this after 3+ months, they believe sales wont decline by much by doing this.

I don't think they'll switch back to normal sized pieces at this point.

They've been closing various locations recently, but anything could have caused that to happen.
You make a good point.
There are those who will steer away, but there are those who will pay anyway, and smaller chicken is most likely costing the company less, so they can afford to lose some business to gain profit on those who remain customers.
(regulars or not-remember, there is a sucker born every minute...)
