I am on vacation in my home and native land. Currently I am in Toronto and tomorrow I will travel to Ottawa where my grandmother will be celebrating her 95th birthday later this week.
The biggest story in Canada right now is the merger between Burger King and Tim Horton's with BK picking up stakes and moving its headquarters to Oakville, Ontario which is about 20 miles from Toronto. For those unfamiliar with Tim Horton's, it is to Canada what Dunkin Donuts is to this country, especially in Massachusetts. Indeed, when Canadian troops were in Afghanistan, a Tim Horton's opened in Kandahar province before closing in 2011 when Canadian troops began their withdrawal.
