Many in corporate Canada are only too eager to impose politically correct censorship on their customers. Many Tim Horton’s WiFi outlets are notorious for this. Talk to the managers and say you don’t appreciate their being the thought police.

Shame on Tim Horton’s

Shame on Tim Horton’s

Tim Horton’s is an iconic and very successful Canadian company. Personally, I like their coffee and prefer it to the wildly overpriced and bitter swill poured out at Starbucks, which, to add insult to injury is fanatically pro-homosexual and pro-Israel.

That being said, Tim Horton’s really disappoints.

1. It is notorious for using Temporary Foreign Workers instead of Canadians. I confronted the Board of Directors about this at their May, 2014 shareholders’ meeting in Toronto. They refused to give me an assurance that, in Canada, “they’d keep employment Canadian.”

2. In February of this year, CAFE exposed and denounced Tim Hortons for having filters in many of its restaurants that filter out “White supremacist” websites, oh, yes, and porn too, as an afterthought. You cannot access Stormfront or American Renaissance. CAFE’s protest resulted in a snotty insolent reply from corporate headquarters. Jon Domanko, Senior Corporate Counsel, provided this reply to a lawyer we asked to protest this policy to Tim Hortons: “In reference to your note below, let me respectively [he may mean ‘respectfully”!] decline your request to change the Tim Hortons Acceptable Use Policy as it relates to wifi available Tim Hortons Restaurants. As a private entity providing a wifi service to guests, it is our contention that it is entirely appropriate to request that guest expressly consent to be bound by the Acceptable Use Policy prior to using the wifi service. If our guests do not agree with the terms of the Acceptable Use Policy they are free not to use the service.” Contrary to Domanko’s assertion, this is not an honour system. Tim Hortons plain and simple has a censorship filter in place.

3. Now it’s clear Tim Hortons continues to censor access to certain sites, including Arthur Topham’s Rqadicalpress.com. I have sadly come to the conclusion that many Big Businesses are heartless and hostile to White interests. They are no friends of free speech or Canadian workers, but huge fans of cheap foreign labour. And have you noticed the shameless support and promotion of the homosexual agenda by our major banks and their advertising promoting and featuring miscegenation — mixed race couples.

Tim Hortons Censors RadicalPress.com in their Coffee Outlets across Canada by Arthur Topham

Will it ever end? Everywhere we turn these day on the Internet someone is trying to censor you. Now it appears that one of Canada’s oldest coffee outlets, Tim Hortons, has also joined the Zionist Jews in deciding who they will allow their customers to visit online while they’re having coffee and a donut.

Over the past while I’ve had a number of readers email me telling me that when they’re in Tim Hortons they can’t access my website and when they try to they get the following message pop up on their screen:

“inappropriate content”???!!! Says who? Is there someone working in this coffee venue who sits and views every website on the net and makes some subjective, arbitrary decision that they don’t like RadicalPress.com and so they simply block it to spare their thousands of customers from seeing the site?

Well I certainly don’t think there’s anything “inappropriate” on my site and so on August 11, 2015 I sent an email to Tim Hortons at the address they provide in their pop-up window TimHortonsWiFi@timhortons.com saying:

Dear Tim Hortons WiFi,

It has been brought to my attention by a number of my readership both here in British Columbia and also in Alberta that when frequenting your coffee outlets they are unable to access my website RadicalPress.com.

Being a regular visitor to one of your outlets in Quesnel, British Columbia where I live and run my publishing business I have also experienced this. Here is a screen shot of what readers and I see when we go to visit my site and read articles and news stories which I have been publishing online for the past 16 years. (see above)

I am not sure where you have received your information that there is “inappropriate content” on my site but my educated guess is that whatever software you are using for your WiFi system has erroneously and/or possibly intentionally included my website for purely political reasons.

I have ran a publishing business here in British Columbia since June of 1998 and have been online since 1999. While Radical Press is known to be a part of the Alternative News media rather than the Mainstream media this does not imply that the content on my website is somehow “inappropriate”. It may be contrary to the Mainstream media but then that is perfectly legitimate in a free and democratic society such as Canada is.

I would therefore request that you please unblock my website so that your customers can not only enjoy your fine coffee but also whatever news sites that they, of their own free will, choose to visit while they are in your restaurant.

Since realizing that you are censoring my business I have stopped visiting my local Timmy’s and now spend my money at Starbucks instead. I would like to be able to buy your coffee and donuts as I have been doing for many many years but of course I expect you to respect my right to remain in business as well.

I look forward to hearing from you regarding this matter at your earliest convenience.

Sincerely,

Arthur Topham

The next day, August 12, 2015 I received the following email from TimHortonsWiFi@timhortons.com:

Good day,

Thank you for your email.
We have received your request and it is in the process of being reviewed.

TimHortonsWiFi@timhortons.com

I immediately replied saying, “Thank you for your prompt reply. I will await your review.”

By August 16 I still had no response and so I wrote again saying:

Dear TimHortonsWiFi,

It is my understanding that you are in the coffee and food industry and not in the business of censoring websites that are legitimate business enterprises.

I feel that you’ve had more than sufficient time to come to what ought to be a very simple solution which is to unblock my site.

We in the Alternative News Media don’t take too kindly to harassment and censorship as that is the main reason why we exist because the mainstream media isn’t doing its job.

I will ask you civilly once again to unblock my site and should I not get a clear answer from you within 48 hours then you will have to bear the consequences of your irresponsible actions.

You have absolutely NO reason to be doing this and ought to be ashamed of your undemocratic, communist tactics.

The next day, August 17, I received an identical reply as I did the first time I contacted them telling me that my “request is in the process of being reviewed”.

Again I replied by stating:
It’s apparent that you either have a robot responding to my emails or else you are not serious in attending to my concerns regarding your censorship actions against my website.

As I stated I would like my site unblocked within 48 hours.

By August 19, 2015 there was still no reply forthcoming from TimHortons so I sent them one final email stating:

Dear TimHortons,

This is my final gesture of good will. You need to ask yourselves whether or not it’s worthwhile for you to be censoring other business’s websites.

I have yet to go online with my planned campaign of telling Canadians and the world at large about your illegal and unethical practises and the boycott of your business.

The following graphic is but a sample of what you will have to deal with.

Please reconsider your position and respond to me immediately or else I will take it that you are determined to block my site.
As of August 22, 2015 and numerous requests I’ve yet to hear back and so I’m taking my concerns online as I advised Tim Hortons.

Obviously whoever is in charge of dealing with blocked sites on Tim Hortons wifi is asleep at the wheel and in dire need of a Extra Large Triple Triple dark roast in order to wake them up.

This is where you, dear friends on Facebook and readers elsewhere can lend me a hand. It won’t cost you a cent. All you need to do is take a moment of your time and send Timmy a brief email asking them to unblock RadicalPress.com. When you do that please bcc me a copy of your email atradical@radicalpress.com so I can get an idea of how many requests are being sent to them.

I’m hoping that if they start to receive more requests than just from me that they will unblock the site.

Also, Tim Hortons is on Facebook as well so maybe those of you on FB might pop over to their page and post a comment regarding this matter.

Let’s see if we can help them to change their minds.

Dear Sir or Madame
 
Re:  censorship of WiFi content in Tim Horton’s outlets
 
Your company is well-known around the world as a genuine Canadian symbol and as such carries the responsibility of reflecting and supporting Canadian values.
 

 
One of the most important – if not the most important value – is freedom of speech.  Successive Governmentshave dedicated the country to its preservation and over one hundred thousand patriots have given their lives in its defence, including comrades and relatives of the writer.  For this hard fought freedom to be trashed by dubiously-motivated individuals who in all likelihood have sacrificed little or nothing in building a democratic society in Canada, is both a betrayal and an insult to your clients as well as your esteemed company and the country, especially Veterans.
 
 
 
I recommend strongly, therefore that you reconsider your censorship of Arthur Topham’s Radical Press. I know Arthur to be 100% patriotic, a conscientious freedom-fighter and righteous in all his endeavours.  He deserves acclaim, not abuse.
 
Yours truly,

Tim Horton’s Censors Political Sights on WiFi Available to Customers

Tim Horton’s Censors Political Sights on WiFi Available to Customers

Until it was sold to Burger King, itself part of Brazilian multinational 3G, Tim Horton’s was an iconic Canadian institution.
 
Now, it appears to be censoring the websites, especially political websites, on the WiFi it provides for customers.
 
This afternoon, after being alerted by a colleague to this censorship, I checked it out for myself at an East End Toronto Tim Horton’s (Leslie St. and the Gardiner Expressway).

When CAFE’s attorney approached Tim Horton’s about this Big Brotherism and censorship, this was the snotty response from Tim Horton’s lead counsel.
Dear Mr. :In reference to your note below, let me respectively decline your
request to change the Tim Hortons Acceptable Use Policy as it relates
to wifi available Tim Hortons Restaurants.
As a private entity providing a wifi service to guests, it is our
contention that it is entirely appropriate to request that guest
expressly consent to be bound by the Acceptable Use Policy prior to
using the wifi service.  If our guests do not agree with the terms of
the Acceptable Use Policy they are free not to use the service.
