A woke Pizzeria in BC is charging customers a 1% tax for “the land you are on” in support of First Nations Tribal Park and culture.

Basic Goodness Pizzeria, a Tofino-based joint, says the tax is done in allyship with First Nations. 

“THE LAND YOU ARE ON: As Tribal Parks allies, basic goodness adds 1% of your bill in support of the Tia-o-qui-aht First Nation’s vision to conserve + revitalize Tribal Parks + culture,” reads a message on receipts given out by the Pizzeria.

The company has also posted far-left talking points on Facebook. One post from 2020 reads “YOU ARE ON NATIVE LAND: ACT LIKE IT.”

Another post from 2020 speaks to Orange Shirt Day.

“We wear orange to acknowledge that colonization and forced assimilation on our children is still alive.” 

It further calls out the “racist institutions” that implemented residential schools.

Other posts point to BLM related support, including support for violence against police, and riots in the streets.

“No justice, no peace” the Pizzeria stated March 31, 2021, in reference to Breonna Taylor, who died by 6 gunshots by US police after they entered her home and were shot at by her boyfriend. 

US Vice President Kamala Harris is proudly supported as well for some reason.

“Thank you for putting the world into deeper harmony + balance,” a post reads, accompanied by a picture of Harris as a child.

Several Twitter users responded to the discovery that the pizzeria charges a tax it can’t legally enforce by claiming they will never visit the restaurant, while others said they wouldn’t pay the tax.

Over in Western Australian, farmers and landowners with more than a quarter-acre of land may need to pay an Indigenous consultant up to $160 an hour to clear trees, put up a fence, or clear tracks on their own property. 

If a farmer wants to do anything that disturbs more than 50 centimetres of soil on their land, they will need government permits and approval from Indigenous people.
