We’ve just gotta ask, where’s the timbit love guys?
We guess it’s forgivable, the survey asked 1,013 Canadian adults what the country’s most “leading edge” brand is and Tim’s, while still an early morning necessity, isn’t exactly a leading edge brand.

The statements asked Canadians if they felt the brands in question were trendsetting, unique, unconventional, innovative, original, ahead of its time, and forever changing the consumer landscape.”
Here’s a few examples of the statements included in the poll: “Is a trendsetter”; “Is unique”; “Is sexy”; “Is edgy” and “Is an original”.
