A Great Canadian icon now owned by America’s Burger King. Tim Horton’s. A few months back when Timmy’s first got bought by Burger King, I released an article talking about how the deal would affect the Canadian Economy in a negative way. At that point in time, people were jumping for joy. They thought that Burger King would move their head office to Canada and more Canadians would get wrong. Refer to my September article (link: http://zakopinion.com/2014/09/04/burger-king-and-tim-hortons-the-bad).
Now that Tim Horton’s is under the control of Burger King, an American company (which is owned by Brazilian equity firm 3g), we have to stand up for ourselves. These people who were fired have families. The effect of this it outrageous. 3g should not dare play games with our economy. This is only the start to a series of layoffs. We cannot let foreign companies jeopardize the lives of hardworking Canadian families. You can add this to the list of many economic cuts ON TOP OF OIL. Thank you to everyone who let this deal happen. Canada has shot itself in the foot and is now feeling the pain.
