Father of two Chris Webb is celebrating getting an apology — and a commitment to install a diaper changing table in the men's washroom of his local Tim Hortons — after sending a thread of irate tweets to the restaurant chain.
Around noon last Friday, Webb was at the Tim Hortons on Don Quichotte Boulevard in the off-island Montreal suburb of Île-Perrot with his 14-month-old son Owen while his wife was getting her hair cut.
When his son needed a diaper change, he went into the men's washroom but there wasn't a changing table.
"It's 2018. Dads change diapers," he told CBC Montreal's Daybreak.
Tim Hortons sent CBC a statement Monday affirming that diaper changing stations in men's washrooms are part of its new layout.
"Obviously as a family brand, we need to make accessible changing tables available for all of our guests. This is now standard in our new restaurant design that is rolling out across Canada," the statement says.
