Betty & Jane Plunger Patrol - Silver Plunger: Silks Country Kitchen
Joel Dempsey accepts the Silver Plunger on behalf of Silks Country Kitchen in Virgil, a special award in recognitiion of the restaurant's role during  Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's breakfast visit.

There’s a sign at Silks Country Kitchen in Virgil that proclaims the restaurant’s washrooms are for patrons only. This week’s award winner was truly “A” list as the Plunger Patrol honours Silks with our Silver Plunger of Distinction. Silks bathrooms earned this award by hosting Prime Minister Justin Trudeau recently. Security was on high alert for the PM’s visit. One bodyguard appeared to be focused on the entrances and exits to restaurant. However, there was one special security guard designated to watch the door to the men’s room. Guards also made sure it was empty before the PM entered. While we have never ranked Silks’ bathrooms, if they are good enough for Trudeau, they are good enough for us. Until now Silks’ most famous guests were Hulk Hogan, a couple of sports stars and some Shaw actor regulars. The Plunger Patrol awards Silks with a Silver Plunger of Distinction.
