Health inspectors conducting a routine inspection shut down a classic McGill samosa sale for several violations.\nStudents have flocked to Twitter to express their disappointment and anger.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nThis is a day that will go down in the annals of McGill.

Hopefully, that means that samosas will be back in business relatively soon.
