Arlene visits two troubled Vancouver businesses seeking her support with community ties and a factory on the line. A one-stop restaurant and butcher in Vancouver‟s lower east side has been providing affordable meals to mixed-income residents for ove... (more)r 50 years. Facing mounting debts and a need for renovations, Save on Meat‟s owner Mark Brand is in desperate need of help. Arlene will need to see Mark trim the fat on his business or the community will lose this neighborhood icon. While in town, Arlene stops by a retail and custom flag manufacturer that is in serious trouble. With ownership issues and 12 locations nationwide, the company will have to wave the white flag unless they can convince her that they‟re new forward-thinking ideas are on the right track.
