A Quebec father’s fight to get a change table in his local Tim Hortons has reignited a campaign by some fathers who want change stations in men’s washrooms across the country.
Jeremy McCall of the London, Ontario-based parent group Dad Club London says he’s inspired by the story of Chris Webb.
The Montreal-area father’s complaints about a local cafe were followed by a move from Tim Hortons to quickly install a change table for dads who visit the suburban Montreal location.
McCall says it’s a battle he and other parents have been waging for two years and they have set up an online petition urging eateries to add change tables if they had none in their men’s washrooms.
A spokesman at Tim’s says the tables men can use will be standard at all Tim Hortons.
Restaurants Canada says that while most large national chains offer “some accommodations” for parents, customers do occasionally have to ask for family-friendly facilities.
