It didn't go up yet

And when prices didn't go up in past decade when min wage didn't go up? What? It didn't happen? Still went up? Lol
It just went up a bit on October 1st. Minimum wage did go up in the past decade and so did prices

How come in places where there's no min wage increase prices went up too? And prices here increased more than min wage?

Prices go up every year. Beef prices have went up. Pork prices have gone up. Everything has gone up. It's nothing new. It's nothing special. At the same time people always act surprised when I happens. Back in my day a loaf of bread was a dollar (true story) and today its pushing $3, or 2 when it's on sale.

Tim Hortons raised the price of their small coffee by two cents and their medium by six or 8 cents and people make it out to be the end of the world. McDonalds will do the same. Except more to come until the rest of the year and then a bigger jump in January. It's happening.

I'm sure prices in Ontario will be more than provinces with lower minimum wages (*except for nationally advertised promotions such as their value menu).

UHHH higher taxes? TTC was only $1.30 cash fare before Mike Harris took over-instantly, the fare went to $2. Thanks Mike Harris!! (and that's just a warm up for my rant-I wish people would think twice before voting conservative)
Be careful what you wish for. Conservatives are very good at being illusionists more so than the liberals, and they have Mike Harris to back that up.
Eventually in life you have to pay the Piper whether you like it or not.
Not disagreeing with you in terms of eventually you need to pay. You do. Happens everywhere.

However, only a sheep would peddle for the Liberals. I am not saying Conservatives are amazing. However, after how badly the liberal party has been for this province and country. It's time for a change. You saying Conservatives are worse and then bring up Mike Harris. Uhh... that was a long time ago. You need to start living in the now and look into the future. A positive future is not Liberal at this point. It would take the conservatives a few terms to dismantle what the Liberals have done. More then 4 years.

As I've said, an NDP minority will be the best way to go. We need balance. That's what the Liberals were supposed to be. They screwed up royally.
A good mix of NDP and conservative is balance. I just don't support the conservatives at all. Don't kid yourself. They ARE strictly for the wealthy while the middle and middle lower classes are treated like total trash. Conservatives have a much longer track record of it than NDP.
Here's an interesting fact for you: With the exception of the NDP, when Ontario is Liberal the federal has always been conservative and vice versa (as elections come up)
It's time for the NDP to have another chance, and yes, Bob Rae's NDP was an even longer time ago.

If you want something more current, ever notice how someone on welfare trying to better themselves through volunteering couldn't even claim the TTC tax break for saving the metropasses because they had no taxable income. (federal conservatives)
In Ontario, They get the SAME $100 for volunteering from the days when metropasses were $99.75. It did not increase since that time. a Metropass today is $146.25. (liberals are guilty of not helping that but you really have to be on drugs if you think the conservatives will raise the amount..."taxes are taxes...F that!!!" is exactly the way the conservatives think. If it's good for the wealthy, that is all that matters according to them and don't dare ever forget that...
(although, if I were the party leader in power I'd just give the metropass so the $100 can't be used or misused in any way.)

If you truly believe it's time for change, consider a protest vote NDP, not conservative...if you still want conservative, that's okay because I do want balance...but I hope we don't get a conservative majority in Ontario.

There's no doubt that the conservatives have made some bad decisions. I would agree with you that an NDP minority could work with the right leadership. At this point it would take a single party (whichever one) a few straight terms to fix the mess the country is in and the province is in. I could care less which party is at the end of the day because I don't peddle for any party. The problem with all 3 is they refuse to acknowledge big government is bad. Ontario is a joke when they start mentioning minimum income when the debt load is this high. The Ontario government needs to fix the electrical situation and enact laws that make it a priority. Businesses are leaving Ontario over this.

Either way, I think we both can agree on the fact that there's a lot of work to be done and hopefully it gets done.

Just realized yesterday they jacked up the cheap sandwich prices, plus no more $1 Summer drinks = no more McDs. Simply not good value anymore.

Just wait for coupon days.
That's generally the only time I'll eat McDonald's.

Or also, keep an eye on the app. New deals every week.

I also noticed they stopped selling the Jr. Bacon Ranch McChicken, and now it's just a Jr. McChicken...

I dunno.. I don't eat a lot of fast food, and the quality of McDonald's has been waning while the prices have been raising. We went there last week because the lineup at A&W was super long, but then I ate it, and regretted not waiting it out for a Mozza or Teen burger....

Okay but what did you order?
A big mac does not compare to any A&W burger, but their Angus burger is pretty good.

There is a variety of slices, but eventually there is a burn out rate for just eating the same food every day.

Funny enough I ordered a Big Mac. I was feeling nostalgic and loved them as a kid. They don't really live up to the memory :(

I'm also not sure how it is out there, but the food quality of McDonald's seems to vary here. Some McD's are better than others.

I have tried the Angus Burger and it was pretty good. I want the McRib to come back, but maybe it's better left in my memory :)
