Protect Our Poppies
Update: Whole Foods reversed their position
November 6, 2020
David Menzies visits a Toronto Whole Foods to see just what's going on with the company's ban on employees wearing poppies.
Whole Foods faced so much backlash, they reversed their decision!
Amazon-owned Whole Foods has banned its employees from wearing Remembrance Day poppies, claiming they’re unacceptable political statements.
That’s an atrocious smear of our war dead, and it’s especially unacceptable coming from a subsidiary of Amazon, a pro-China corporation.
Poppies are about remembering those who bravely served and died for our country.
It is about valuing their sacrifice and the freedoms we enjoy because of their sacrifice — including our freedom of political expression.
If you agree that U.S.-owned, China-loving Whole Foods should stop punishing its employees who want to wear a poppy, please sign our petition.
It’s disgusting and disgraceful that @WholeFoods has banned poppies for their employees. We will always stand with our veterans. Whole Foods should apologize and immediately reverse this decision. Everyone should wear a poppy #lestweforget.— Doug Ford (@fordnation) November 6, 2020
