Entertainment: Miss Canada returning to Philippines for Tim Hortons launch

MANILA — Miss Universe Canada 2016 and body positive activist Siera Bearchell is coming back to the Philippines. Bearchell, who was just in the country last week as she competed in the 65th Miss Universe competition, will be returning to Manila for the local launch of Tim Hortons, Canada’s iconic coffee and donuts chain, scheduled at the end of February.

Tim Hortons’ first store in the Philippines will be at the Uptown Place Mall in Taguig.

Bearchell was part of the 65th Miss Universe pageant, where she finished in the top 9.

During her stay in the country, Bearchell made headlines when she took on critics who body-shamed her for her size, endearing herself to many Filipinos.

“As soon as I started to love who I was rather than always trying to fit what I thought society wanted me to be, I gained a whole new side of life,” she said.

“This is the side I am trying to bring to the Miss Universe competition, the side of life that is so rare to find: self-worth and self-love. We always focus on the things we wish we could change rather than loving everything we are,” she added.
