Who’s Slogan Is It: Canadian Political Party or Fast Food Chain?
It’s either brilliant marketing savvy or a sad state of political affairs that many political mottos from the top federal parties in Canada can be confused with Canadian fast food slogans.
On one hand it makes sense. As CBC noted, “A new online dictionary of Canadian political terms attributes the term ‘Tim Hortons voter’ to the Harper Conservatives who ‘have been successful in embracing Tim Hortons culture, particularly when contrasting it to more elite, Starbucks voter groups.’”
On the other hand, you’d like to think that selling Canadian voters on a political party to run the nation would take a little more sophistication than it takes to sell them on a double-double and some Timbits. Alas, it doesn’t.
