McDonalds Set to Whack Canadian Competitor

In a brazen marketing attack, American fast food giant McDonald's is taking on a Canadian coffee icon, Tim Hortons.

From April 20 until May 3, the Golden Arches will be offering its premium roast coffee for free.

Yup.... FOR FREE!!!!

The free coffee will be available between 5 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. every morning, with no other purchase necessary.

The promotion aims to divert a percentage of the regular traffic lined up at the approximately 3,000 Tim Hortons across Canada towards the 1,400 McDonald's.

Will Canadians stand firm and resist the attack on a Canadian institution?

.........Not a chance!

Free coffee is free coffee!

Throw in a free McSomething and we'll give you our kids!
