A spokesperson for Tim Horton’s spoke to Global News and said the company is “deeply concerned by this video as the safety of their team members and guests is always a top priority for them.”
“In limited cases across the country, restaurants have a restricted access policy for restrooms to ensure the well-being of our guests,” the spokesperson told Global News.
“Our current understanding is that the team member used their discretion in this case and denied access to this guest based on past behaviour and out of concern for the immediate safety of team members and guests in the restaurant. As matters escalated, the team member contacted local authorities for assistance.”
Tim Horton's added guests are not required to make a purchase to use the restroom. However, in some cases, restaurants may have a buzzer or key entry for restrooms.
The woman was detained by police and later released. Global New reported she will appear in court at a later date.
