An attendant at a Canadian eatery who was sacked for giving a 16-cent bite-sized doughnut to an agitated toddler was given her job back after wide media attention and a number of complaints. Nicole Lilliman, a single mother, said she was dismissed from a London, Ontario, outlet of the Tim Hortons coffee and doughnut chain after video cameras captured the 27-year-old giving a Timbit to a toddler. "It was just out of my heart. . . . I should have gone to my purse and got the change, but it was busy," Lilliman told the Toronto Star newspaper.
