CBC Reporter Brett Ruskin Saves Stranded Tim Hortons Cup From Vehicular Doom

CBC has been on a roll lately.

And now, Halifax reporter Brett Ruskin has crafted the year's most exciting Canadian thriller.

It's got it all: Ruskin chases after a car, he rescues a Tim Hortons cup from impending doom and – of course – is very polite throughout the entire thing.

Watch the short film he shared Tuesday, which we'll hastily call "RUSKIN'S RUSH" or "PUBLIC MANDATE," embedded below:
