timscupNovember 17, 2008. Edmonton – The Stanley Cup hasn't been welcome in town since 1967, and, if a
compromise cannot be reached soon, the city will make Tim Hortons
coffee cups off limits, too.

What does the City of Toronto have against cups?

The Stanley
Cup hasn't been welcome in town since 1967, and, if a compromise cannot
be reached soon, the city will make Tim Hortons coffee cups off limits,
too. Even though Tim Hortons uses cups and lids that are 100%
recyclable, the lids create a headache for Toronto's recycling program.
Apparently your daily double-double is double trouble for the city,
which doesn't have facilities to separate the plastic lid from the
paper cup.

We also just learned that the city will be sending out
to all residents a 24-page quarterly newsletter at a cost of $400,000
more than the city currently spends on similar publications. I can tell
you that newsletter is one item I will definitely recycle.
