-Justin Trudeau was in Winnipeg for the three-day Liberal Cabinet Retreat
-An online order was placed for multiple dozens of donuts at bakery Oh Doughnuts; on Monday they learned who it was for when he picked them up
-Social media users are outraged that he didn't choose cheaper donuts from a place like Tim Hortons
-People jumped to the conclusion that he paid a whopping $47 per dozen. Not the case! The bakery says their fancier donuts would come to $47 per dozen, but he ordered basic assorted donuts AND got a 10% discount for ordering online
-The bakery fired back at the haters and called out Tim Hortons for all the shitty stuff they've done (locking out staff for a 10-cent raise, donuts aren't baked fresh in stores, local ingredients aren't used). Oh Doughnuts is a local bakery and thus needs to charge more than Tim Hortons.
For all those folks complaining that @JustinTrudeau paid too much for our doughnuts when he could have got a dozen at Tim’s for $10, consider this:— OhDoughnuts (@OhDoughnuts) January 21, 2020
-Tim’s isn’t Canadian owned;
-Many Tim’s owners have taken away breaks & benefits from their staff;
