    Break as in 3 shifts. People gotta eat. Little known fact that Horton's, being a good community business gives free coffee / pasteries to all emergency services (including snow clearing) and 50% off a meal deal. That's why you often see these vehicles outside Horton's.

    A bunch of things:
    1. Not all Tim Horton's owners provide either free or discounted products to snow workers
    2. I think they mean There are no breaks BETWEEN the shifts like an hour or 2 before the next shift starts, NOT no breaks on shift, which would be illegal.

    Mackey said the city had a full shift on Sunday and planned to keep crews on with no breaks between the shifts until we get things under control.

    That must be why I saw five snowplows parked in the Harvey Road Timmy's parking lot at 7pm last night.

    To JK -
    Just because its snowing, do you propose that the equipment operators work without stopping to eat?
    I bet that nobody stands over your shoulder and chastises you for taking your lunch break.

    Is this legal?
