"Tim Hortons shares soar on Burger King merger talks," writes The Globe and Mail today. The blockbuster marriage "would create the third-largest quick-service restaurant provider in the world." On word of the news, Tim Hortons stock rose more than 18 per cent in Toronto while shares of Burger King rose close to 15 per cent in New York. This all comes on the heels of some unorthodox stunts by Tim Hortons to promote the chain's 50th anniversary and new line of dark roast coffee. [The Globe and Mail]
