Welcome to Canada: Have a coffee and a donut?

Premiering during the 2010 Olympics, a new Tim Hortons commercial depicts a common migrant experience: a family reuniting at a Canadian airport. Welcoming the mother and two small children is a newcomer (immigrant or refugee?) father who extends a coffee to his wife after a tearful reunion kiss saying “Welcome to Canada”. It’s not visible, but one would presume that the kids get a Canadian treat too, perhaps a donut? Maybe the latest promotion, the “Canadian donut“.
