- Apparently Tim Hortons is opening a bunch of stores in the Middle East. So far, according to the Star, the company doesn’t plan on expanding beyond a handful of countries there, but don’t be surprised if, in a few years, Israeli and Palestinian leaders are leaving peace talks with Timbit crumbs on their shirts.
- The OpenFile deathwatch continues. Freelance writers who haven’t been paid since the company suddenly ceased publication have started a Tumblr, where they’ve posted an open letter to CEO Wilf Dinnick.
