Tim Hortons is part of my country, and I get very defensive of Tim Hortons, and I feel like I need to protect the menu here, so I’ll do everything I can to make sure nothing untoward is going to happen to my Tim Hortons menu. …We are a nation of doughnut-eating people. … It’s so random and strange but that’s just part of who we are.

–Ex-90210 star Jason Priestley, a celebrity judge in Tim Hortons’ design-a-doughnut competition, works himself into a patriotic fervour over the coffee-and-pastry chain’s menu of deep-fried dough. The Canadian actor was in Oakville yesterday to whittle the field down to the final eight before a public online vote on August 5. Among the contenders: the marshmallow-filled S’More of It, the banana-flavoured Monkey C-Donut, Monkey Do-Nut and the cookies ’n cream–inspired Oreo Borealis. [Canadian Business]
