Merge/buy, whatever you want to call it, but Burger King is a United States company, headquartered in Florida.

Burger King was started in the United States in 1954 and now, 60 years later, Burger King is going to buy a Canadian company and change its company location to Canada to dodge paying a few extra dollars income tax!

Is it too much to expect a corporate “person” (per the United States Supreme Court) to pay for the favorable business environment, favorable physical environment and infrastructure that allowed Burger King to become the successful business it has become?

I will boycott Burger King.

Robert Wainger, Redmond
