There were 'angry burgs', seals, children, couples braving the weather and even oyster shuckers turned burger lovers but none topped the burg love of our fearless Ambassadors: Chelsey Mock + Colin MacDonald!When asked about their mission (to attack #HfxBurgerWeek with fervor and unbridled love for burgers) Ambassador Colin lamented:"The most flavourful burger I have ever eaten was a deer burger deep in old Montreal.
