In Canada, they chase Tim Hortons cups

MONTREAL — What’s not to love about this place? Not just this great city, but all of Canada, where on any given weekday morning half the country walks around the streets carrying cups of Tim Hortons coffee.

That, my friends, is a real hockey country. Tim Horton, Hall of Fame defenseman, is the first thought many Canadians have each day when taking on the world. Get up, get outta bed, drag a comb across your head . . . and race to Timmy Ho’s for a steaming cup of coffee and some tempting confectionary treats always displayed in a shiny glass case like pieces of fine jewelry.
