The fast food giant sells this thing that purports to be an old-fashioned lobster roll in parts of Canada for a limited time each year. For the longest time, it used to be the exclusive domain of McDonald's in the Maritimes — Nova Scotia native Ellen Page is riveted — but now, the so-called McLobster has made its way to Ontario, and while some have argued this is great news for the lobster industry, others are just scared out of their minds. A supposed delicacy made with "100 percent Atlantic Lobster" sold at the low, low price of $6.97 ($6.77 U.S.D.) per roll by the world's most powerful restaurant chain is bound to prompt a breath of strong reactions, and we've got 21 of them, straight ahead.
