Martha Robertson: Burger King Should Not Move to Canada

August 27, 2014

TOMPKINS COUNTY, NY – Democrat congressional candidate Martha Robertson is speaking out against Burger King’s attempt to buy Tim Horton’s and become a Canadian company.

“Burger King is an American company, and it’s downright unpatriotic for them to abandon the country that allowed them to succeed in the first place. This is yet another example of corporations shipping jobs and profits out of the country – a practice I will fight in Congress. Unfortunately my opponent, Congressman Tom Reed, has been part of the problem, voting for unfair trade deals and tax policies that have made these corporate moves significantly easier – and that’s just plain wrong for the working families of New York’s 23rd District,” said Martha Robertson.
