Horrible Subway Ad

WillPate on Flickr, has a picture of a new ad from Subway which reads:

France and Chicken
Somehow it just goes together

I saw it myself today while passing the Subway on Hornby Street. The weird thing is that it’s not an ad that’s being run in the States, it seems to be Canada only.

Even if Subway wants to appeal to bigots, what do Canadians have against France? Is there something that I missed? If they’re referring to the whole “freedom” fries fiasco, aren’t they a few years behind? I just don’t get the ad …
