Not so say BJ.com reporters who follow everything* broadcast from "The Great White (Eternally) Frozen North" Also known as Canada. For your enlightenment:

*(BJ.com does not however, endorse the commercials. Especially those which 'push' junk products which merely disguise themselves as 'life' enhancers, or helpers). Bullschitt!

Watch out Canada! Burger King has its sights set on Tim Hortons next! Yep, we're talikin' takeover, then move BK headquarters right downtown Toronto, or Vancouver in a move that's designed ta pay fewer tax dollars ta Uncle Sam ta waste by invading countries just because we can!

http://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2014/08/25/et-tu-burger-king-yet-another-inversion-but-this-time-one-with-a-big-lesson/

This move poses a serious question for "Uke List" boycotters... Do we add Burger King to the list, or perhaps Tim Hortons tu? Or should we take a 'wait 'n' see' attitude, and wait for more news?

Perhaps Pipes can chime in, Tim Horton's isn't selling any health food, I don't think, although I've never spent a dime there. As for Burger King, healthy nutrition isn't their strong suit, either.

Walgreen's just threatened to move their HQ out of the U. S. but feared the backlash. It'll probably come up again. Next thing you know, Wick and Matt and the rest will be thinking of moving.

Krebs tried that shit tu! He and then CN CEO-Pres Paul Tellier yakked up the idea of a CN/BNSF combo headquartered in Canada tu!

Shareholders shot that one down as soon as it came up! Now 2LARRCO hqs. is still in the good ol' USA!

Meanwhile Texas is still considering ceding from the USA. And Gov. Rick Perry refuses ta live at the governor's mansion at the state capitol in Austin!

Tim Hortons, is along the lines of dunkin donuts. Better coffee and donuts in my humble opinion but, i have not been to a D.D in years. I dont really go to BK, but its ok for a fast food burger. This is just a tax move for BK and another expansion attempt in to the US market on behalf of Timmies

http://bostonherald.com/news_opinion/opinion/op_ed/2014/08/morici_dollars_to_doughnuts_obama_s_taxes_cooked_up_burger_king_s

Let's add 'em ta the "Uke Boycott List" and be done with Burger King for good! Remember Burger King hates America!

                                            bk2014.jpg

This just might be the perfect time ta make the big move. Ta Canada. If they letcha in.
They (Canada's gov't.0 seem ta welcome people from everywhere else in the world, so it may be our turn.

And there's more than one reason ta head north tu! Marketwatch (A CBS news outfit/on line blog) reports why, and the FIVE (5) reasons:http://www.marketwatch.com/story/5-reasons-to-flee-the-us-for-canada-2014-08-29

Uncle Warren, this must be another, thanks, O' Bama:

Earlier this week, Burger King (NYSE: BKW ) announced it is acquiring Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons (NYSE: THI ) to create a fast food powerhouse with $23 billion in revenues. Behind the deal is Burger King's majority investor, Brazilian investment group 3G Capital, which will own approximately 51% of the combined company. Although it only commands a two-sentence paragraph in the press release, another savvy investor, Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-B ) , is participating in financing the deal with a $3 billion preferred share investment. This is the second time in eighteen months that Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett has joined forces with 3G Capital, but it won't be the last. Here's why Berkshire shareholders ought to rejoice at that prospect.

We thought Canada was relatively free of these 'rails-ta-trails' nutcases that figure they oughta be able ta ride bicycles everywhere where tracks are already in place, and have been for over 100 years! They hate trains, and railroads, and railroads tu!

Idiots!

Okay so they DO have a few nut cases, and tree-hugger types up there... But ya gotta remember it's still "The Great White (Almost always) Frozen North." Proof?

Canadian city of Calgary struggles with late summer snowfall

CALGARY Alberta Thu Sep 11, 2014 2:05am IST

Local area residents clear away fallen tree branches after they collapsed from the weight of the heavy snow during a summer snow storm in Calgary, Alberta, September 10, 2014. REUTERS-Todd Korol
 

Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, the city of 1.2 million is used to bizarre weather and heavy snowfalls are common in the winter months. But the early September storm, which has so far dumped as much as 35 centimeters (14 inches) of snow since Monday, is unusually early and especially damaging because the wet, heavy snow is landing on trees still thick with leaves.

"About every decade we get a significant snow event (in September)," said Bill McMurtry, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, the country's national weather service. "This one will probably be seen as one of the worst ones, just because it happened so early in the month and we have not had a killing frost ... so we're going to see some major impacts."

While damage from the snow won't rival the flood that swept through the city in 2013 causing as much as C$1.7 billion ($1.55 billion) in damages, the city's traffic was snarled and falling branches from trees landed on cars and brought down power lines.

While many flights at the city's airport, a major regional hub, were delayed, there were few major impacts from the storm, the Calgary Airport Authority said. Still Air Canada warned travelers that flights could be delayed or canceled due to the storm.

The snow was also heavy enough to flatten wheat, barley and some canola crops in parts of Alberta, which produces nearly 40 percent of Canada's spring wheat and canola.

  "They're a mess, because there are large patches (of crops) that have been lodged now and are just lying every which way," said Harry Brook, crop specialist for the Alberta government. "And we're going to see quality issues."

 Wet conditions can bleach the color or cause kernels to sprout in wheat and barley crops, lowering their value.

 Snow and rain across much of Alberta will also delay the harvest, which is about one-quarter complete and slightly behind the normal pace. Below freezing temperatures could also kill crops before many of them mature.

The storm is expected to peter out over the remainder of Wednesday and temperatures are expected to rise to 24 Celsius (75 Fahrenheit) by Monday, Environment Canada said.

Sure. When was the last time anybody remembers 75-F in Canada? Bullschitt!
