July 14, 2010 – The Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association is reporting some disturbing news today about the effects of last year's G20 summit in downtown Toronto.



According to the CRFA's member survey, 93 per cent of downtown respondents and 73 per cent in the
rest of the city reported a “significant decrease” in sales between
June 21 and June 30, compared to the same period in 2009.

Were you affected by the G20 summit? We'd like to hear from you if you were.

Even if you're not in Toronto, we'd like to hear your thoughts about the organization and execution of the summit and whether you think the government is doing enough to compensate businesses that suffered from the massive disruptions to traffic, tourism and everyday commerce.
