Canadians rally for Day of Action in support of Tim Hortons' workers (PHOTOS)

Jan 19 2018, 1:53 pm

It might be a routine stop for many Canadians but today at Tim Hortons outlets across Canada, Canadians turned up for something other than a Double Double.

The Canada-wide Day of Action saw unions, workers advocacy groups, and customers rally in support of Tim Hortons’ workers’ rights as staff at some Ontario locations face cutbacks to benefits and paid breaks as franchise owners seek to offset the minimum wage increase that came into effect across the province on January 1, 2018.

Protests outside Tim Hortons began as early as 8 am in Toronto and are ongoing across the country, with the latest happening in Vancouver this evening.

See how Canada turned out to support the people that serve them coffee every day.
