Burger King merger and its flight to Canada

Plans to relocate to Canada

Burger King was started in the United States in 1954 and now, 60 years later, it’s going to buy a Canadian company and change its company headquarters to Canada to dodge paying a few extra dollars of income tax [“Burger King to buy Tim Hortons; headquarters will shift to Canada,” Business, Aug. 27].


Is it too much to expect a corporate person (per the United States Supreme Court) to pay for the favorable business environment, physical environment and infrastructure that allowed Burger King to succeed in the first place?

Robert Wainger, Redmond
