What happens when Toronto’s saffrons are banned?

A city-owned restaurant has come under fire after its owner posted an Instagram video showing patrons celebrating their banishment.

The restaurant’s owner, Jodi Bouchard, posted a photo to Instagram showing a group of diners celebrating their removal from her restaurant, The Saffron Bar.

“Thanks to everyone who voted me the best saffrino bar in Toronto,” she wrote in the caption.

“Thank you for all the great memories!”

The restaurant was named Best of Toronto by the city’s restaurant magazine, and Bouchards family is planning a barbecue for Friday.

BouchARD’S FRIEND’S POSTS ON INSTAGRAM BouchARDS FAMILY SAYS THEY’RE BANNING SACRED SANCTUARY “There is a sacred sanctuary in our community that will not be violated,” Bouchairs family wrote on the Facebook page for The Saafron Bar, which is located in the northwest Toronto neighbourhood of Dufferin-Highlands.

“Our family has been here since 1975.

We love Toronto and its diverse culture, and we are proud to be the home of our family of saffromancers.”

Bouchar’s husband, Kevin, also posted a video of the celebrations.

“This is the best moment of my life.

I am so thankful to all the patrons that voted me as the best sabbron bar in the city, and I am proud of my husband and family,” he wrote.

Boulas said she was concerned about the repercussions of her post on social media.

“I just want to say thank you to everyone that voted for me the Best of the Best and have stood by me,” she said.

“The next time you want to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary with a saffRON party, let me know.

We will be celebrating at the saffRINO Bar on Friday.

Let us know what your favourite saffROMANCER is.”
