#BoycottTims: The campaign is just getting started

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

I love Tim Hortons. But yesterday I found out they didn't like me back.

It all started when Tim Hortons bowed to pressure from foreign anti-pipeline lobbyists to pull a soft-focus Enbridge commercial from its in-store advertising. Tim Hortons agreed.

The people who pressured Tim Hortons don't even live in Canada, and their supporters here aren't the type of people who tend to be regular Tim Hortons customers.

The good new is that when they found out about Tim Hortons attitude towards the energy industry, ordinary Canadians took to social media to protest.

TheRebel.media set up a petition site at BoycottTims.com, and created a radio ad, too. Rogers Radio refused to take it.

That's OK.

Average people  -- not professional activists - held a protest outside a Calgary Tim Hortons this afternoon. We'll have video up about that shortly.

This is just the beginning.


JOIN TheRebel.media for more fearless news and commentary you won’t find anywhere else.

Tim Hortons has declared war on Canada’s energy industry.
SIGN THE PETITION at BoycottTims.com

I can’t sign the petition, no way, no how. I’ve tried closing all windows and logging directly into the website, but whatever I do, it just starts saving and keeps on saving… it won’t finish. Maybe my computer doesn’t have enough band width, I don’t know. I tried, but I just couldn’t complete the process. Could some old, bald, half blind fat guy out there sign twice, once for me? Thanks.

So Timmie’s was threatened with boycott if they didn’t pull the ad, and now they’re threatened with boycott since they have. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

Warren Buffett is deeply involved in the financing this particular enterprise and it is a given that anyone who screws things up the way they have in this case will soon be looking for new employment.

Another gross example of a vocal (and apparently not even Canadian) minority, setting the agenda.

What I find funny about Americans, is that they don’t, and never will understand Canadians! The recent demise of Target is a good example of a corporation that, thought they could operate in Canada, without providing the same quality of products, as offered in the US. They found out differently. Tim’s response to the blackmail petition is now finding out that Canadians will not be toyed with.

Vlad you opinion is noted.

@ronzager – your alarmist rant is lame. You an disgruntled ex-employee?

Tim’s made a dumb move. They’ll reverse it. Life will move on.

Not sure what compels Canadians to crap on “created in Canada”. Must be repressed anger from an overbearing goobermint ram-rodding PC down our throats all day long.

It’s good that I don’t have Rogers, or I would be changing companies a.s.a.p!

It is 3GCapital who are the majority owners of Tim Hortons:-
http://3g-capital.com/
They own Burger King and bought Tim Hortons so they could move their head office to Canada and avoid the higher corporation tax rate in the USA.
3GCapital are capitalist globalists. They are just plain bad. Ask some franchise owners how they are enjoying their new masters. If there is enough outcry here they would probably sell off the Tim Hortons division. Here’s hoping.

Time to boycott rogers as well.
