Sign language restaurant opens in Toronto 

CTV News in Toronto are reporting that a new restaurant has opened called Signs. Signs will be staffed mainly by deaf sign language users and as well as food, customers will also get an education in American Sign Language. The restaurant — billed as the first of its kind in Canada — also hopes to help an underemployed segment of the population. “I think this is one of the largest breakthroughs we’ve seen in our community in a long time. We probably have 35 staff (members) working in one place…that’s huge for our (Deaf) community.”
