Question of the Day: #BoycottTims: Was Tim Horton's right to pull Enbridge ad?

Emily PrattRebel Correspondent

Tim Hortons is facing backlash after puling the plug on an Enbridge advertising campaign. This in response to anti-pipeline Canadians who condemned the company for playing the commercials in the first place

I hit the streets to see if you think Tim Hortons made the right decision to pull the Enbridge ad.

Tim Hortons has declared war on Canada’s energy industry.

Thortons showed their true colours when enviro-whacko push comes to shove.
That’s all that really matters.

How on earth can Tim Horton’s decide who they choose to do business with. It’s no different than the (Christian) baker deciding who they choose to do business with. The lefties don’t even try to hide their hypocrisy – or maybe they just don’t get it.

Hey! just found this site! It’s good to see Ezra still out there. Thank god that useless SNN failed so Ezra could concentrate on more important issues of the day.

So long Tim, you’ve see the last of this customer until you reverse course, stop kowtowing to the pixie dust energy crowd, and show support for Canada’s crucial petroleum industry. Ciao.

George Drummond, nice point.

Political? Hypocritical? Who really has the best coffee?
We have been drawn into bickering, distracted mostly by people who would like us to wander off from the real issue.
I only hope that Canadians are becoming sick and tired of foreign groups sticking their nose into our business and demanding that we behave in a way that suits their idea of correctness.
Now we can add this insidious incident to the list that includes CTV, under pressure from Saudi Arabia, pulling the Ethical Oil advertisement.
Those were the same Saudi thugs who wrote to the Speaker of the Quebec National Assembly, complaining that the province’s media were writing too sympathetically about Raif Badawi, the blogger who was sentenced to ten years in prison and one thousand lashes for setting up a website that championed free speech.

Politically motivated to have the Enbridge ads pulled (which, of course, Ezra called an attack against Canada), and politically motivated retaliation/boycott. Can’t win for losing. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

At least Ezra’s consistent — he’s less of a reporter than a sh!t disturber… (Just give us the facts, dude, and leave the hyperbole at the curb!)

It’s not boredom. The whole point is that Tim Horton’s has made a reputation of being eco-friendly over the years, and when you think about it, they are being hypocritical. What fuels the power? How many carbon emissions are being pumped in the drive-thru, where they make most of their sales. Always 4-5 employees at drive-thru and maybe 1-2 at in-store counter. Not saying they’re evil, but certain decisions have consequences.

This is such a bullshit rant, Ezra was bored…..what do you think about camp day dude?

Where do you find such stupid people? Tim Hortons should be allowed to advertize anything they want and an Enbridge advertizement IS NOT A POLITICAL STATEMENT and those bozos who claimed it was should have been called out! If anything those who caused them to take it down WERE POLITICALLY MOTIVATED and should be made public.

Do this survey in Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Red Deer, Swift Current, Regina and Estevan and see what kind of response you would get, Downtown Toronto is not indicative of anything.
