Their salad is really good, but darn expensive.

I think that depends on the location.
Interesting observation: Notice how, almost immediately after it is said that McDonald's might terminate salads,
Wendy's is going ALL out to ONLY advertise salads on TV!!!
just because they do something in the states, doesn't mean they will do it here.

I'm sorry I have no idea what you are referring to. The salads being discontinued at McDonald's or Wendy's TV ads being all about salads.

I like their side Caesar, it was Romaine last time I got it. I usually get a side Caesar + something cheap or a Filet o' Fish :) I hope they don't discontinue them...

Discontinuation of salads. McDonalds Canada discontinued breakfast biscuits. Pretty sure they won't be doing that in the states

The Biscuit is available, but discontinued. When they're gone they are gone.
As for the salads, you are correct that McDonald's Canada does have it's differences from McDonald's USA, but there is no suggestion or hint that salads will or will not continue to be available, should McDonald's USA discontinue theirs.
No one at McDonald's Canada has stepped up to the plate to say "Yes we will continue to offer salads..." as of yet...

When was the last time you were there? If it's just the Whopper you don't like, try something else!
prob a couple yrs ago. I dont hate BK, but theres enough better options to choose from, that I cant be bothered. whoppers are ok-at best. fries taste...off, like there was something in the deep fryer with them that shouldnt have been. Onion rings are crispy but so fake. Chicken sandwiches are overly greasy and salty...pretty much just like a giant one of the old school dark meat pressed mcnuggets on a bun.
If every wendys and mcd's went out out business, maybe Id go back to BK. It just tastes faker than every other fast food joint, IMO.
Thanks for the memories, RFD.
Good-bye.

Just because something is on the site, doesn't mean it's offered in every location. Example: Big Xtra, not available at the 3 nearby full McDonalds, but was available at the McDonalds inside WalMart.

Looks like the biscuits are now gone from the site. Glad, wasn't impressed with them, and when I took advantage of that promo when it happened, I took the egg/cheese/bacon(or sausage) off and ate that. Thankfully I've moved away from the fast food for the most part.

The salads were so expensive compared to McDonalds in the US. I'm not sure if they still have it there, but side salads in McDs US were on the DOLLAR value menu and sizes were comparable to full entree portions of salads in Canada. How are Americans so fat if their salads are so cheap???

Going to McDonald's just for a salad is like going to see a prostitute just to get a hug. It seems not served for its purpose.

I have to disagree. Have you tried their chicken salad? Available in grilled or breaded.
