SHUFFLING OFF TO BUFFALO , NEW YORK . YES, THERE REALLY WAS A TIM HORTON.

FB_IMG_1501595593919As you and your  family  get off the train in the  Canalside  of the city, your son notices a statue of  a hockey  player.

He bends down to  look at  the  plaque and reads the  name.

“Tim Horton ?  Do they mean like the coffeeshops?”

You nod your head.

You explain that among other  teams ,  Horton  also  played for the  Buffalo  Sabres hockey  club.

You explain  to  the children that not only were the coffeeshops  named after  him, he was the person who  founded them.
