Today Whole Foods made a decision which had Canadians very upset. They decided to start banning employees from wearing poppies in the stores. I’m not really sure why they did that, and quite frankly, I don’t care in the slightest. I don’t care who you are or how much money you’ve got, you don’t get to tell Canadians whether or not we’re allowed to wear poppies. It seems that that is how everyone else feels too, because the house of commons came to a unanimous decision to condemn that kind of behaviour. Like it should just be obvious to anyone running a business in Canada, but now it’s been specifically decided on. You cannot force people to not wear poppies for remembrance day.
I think as a nation we can be proud of that. We value the sacrifices made for our freedom so much that even all these years later, we can come together regardless of political belief, and agree on something like this.
