Ads for pipeline giant Enbridge will no longer be seen by Canadians waiting in line for double-doubles and Timbits. The spots had been airing for close to three weeks on screens at more than 15-hundred Tim Hortons locations between British Columbia and Ontario. The group "Sum of Us" got an online petition going calling on the coffee chain to pull the ads. Emma Pullman is a senior campaigner with "Sum of Us." She says Enbridge was trying to use Tim Hortons' household name to sell controversial pipeline projects like Northern Gateway. (Enbridge says it enjoyed working with Tim Hortons but it respects its decision.)
