Emer­gency at Tim­mys

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - EDITORIAL -

Ques­tion: If the emer­gency he­li­copter pi­lot who landed at a Timmy’s (near O’Leary in March) had rolled up the rim and won, to whom does the prize ac­tu­ally go?

Is it an is­sue that might be based on the net worth of the prize? Can the prize be deemed a gift if he bought the cof­fee? If he did not buy the cof­fee, but was given it, is that do­na­tion deemed an en­tice­ment for ad­di­tional pro­mo­tion of the es­tab­lish­ment and called an unau­tho­rized en­tice­ment?

OK, this could re­ally get out of hand. Let’s be hon­est, while he was get­ting his large dou­ble dou­ble, count­less oth­ers were in the driveby lane on their way to work get­ting theirs as well.
