By Barry Conn Hughes of the 'Ottawa Citizen' Newspaper - 1970


Quotes of significance:


"The seasoning is the Colonel's famous 'secret blend of 11 different herbs and spices.' Col. Sanders does not whomp this up in the basement in the dark of night, but neither does he let the franchised operator do it: 'Why, then his cook would go away and tell somebody else how to do it.'

So the job is farmed out to a suitably secretive industrial seasoning supplier, Stange Canada Limited in Toronto. Stange ('Silent Partners in Famous Foods') ships it out in cartons bearing the picture of Col. Harland Sanders."

I'm sure our Canadian members will get a kick out of this quote:


"He [Col. Sanders] gets grumpy when he talks about American owners who haven't always followed his tried and true system, and says, 'I'm facing embarrassment in the U.S'

He has nothing but admiration, however, for Canada and spends four months a year in the brick bungalow he owns in cooksville, Ont., near Toronto.

'In Canada, you don't have to watch for tricksters and shysters,' he says. 'You can do things on a handshake.'"

And finally, here is a strange and unusual quote:


"Back in Windsor again, Col. Sanders has a quick lunch at the Holiday Inn - fillet of sole and a bottle of beer - and heads for a press conference with local reporters."

I'm guessing the author used a little "poetic license" here, in the absence of knowing - or even forgetting - what Colonel Sanders actually ate that day; as it is mentioned in at least two Colonel Sanders biographies, as well as several interviews, that he never drank alcohol, believing it to be a destructive "vice" to be avoided. He even went as far as to declare once, that a condition for potential students to be eligible for a "Scholarship" to a given University (paid for by himself), was that the student would have to giveup both alcohol and cigarettes...
