Why do Canadians love Tim Horton's so much?

Monte Solberg delivers a fierce rebuke to Americans and their weak and tasteless coffee, and pledges his allegience to that Canadian shrine that is Tim Horton's.

How did Tim's become the shrine of all that is Canadian? How did it rise from simply being another donut place, to being an epitome of all that is Canadian. It cannot simply be the coffee, it certainly isn't the donuts, there must be something else, something deeper, something imbedded within it that leaves us helpless from its clutches, desperate to make the frequent pilgrimage to the shrine to worhip.

And you don't have to pay ten dollars for the priviledge of strong coffee at Tim Horton's either, unlike Starbucks.
