    It’s shameful

  2. – – you would THINK that they would make an ECCEPTION with this wonderful “poppy Badge” that symbolizes the HONOR and RESPECT that we have for all of our Vets and their wonderful families !! – – …..( who also prob. shop there ) – –

  3. Our symbols are more sacred than our reasons.

  4. Outrageous!

    Amazon owned company..

    • Too many yankee owned companies here. Their decisions are often disrespectful of Canadian beliefs, case in point. We need to get back to having more major chain stores be Canadian owned.

      @grunf0094 wholeheartedly agree with you. Instead former manufacturing facilities are being tuned into condos for foreign investors; also, 2 of 3 major cities in Wloo Region have Amazon warehouses opening soon along with drones slated to start servicing the region for deliveries and other uses too..

  10. Another reason I will never shop in Whole Foods again!!!

    I will never shop there ever again! 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦

  12. So is this the same policy in the other Amazon companies?

    if they dont change their policy, we will not shop there.

      They have reversed their decision but to even suggest such a policy is enough for me. I’ve shopped at one of the first Whole foods in Canada for over a decade…. I’m done!

    then the RCMP should close them down and send them back to the USA.

      Cops dont shut down companies in Canada dude. Canada is a democracy not a fascist dictatorship. Get educated fascist loving con!!

  17. so I’m never shopping there now. isn’t this owned by Amazon anyways? why even support an American chain?

  18. I boycotted Whole Foods. The poppy is not a fashion statement, its a show of respect for all the freedom we have as Canadians. It comes for a brief time once a year.

  19. Perhaps each Whole foods store could donate about $10,000 to to closest legion for poppies.

  20. Whole Foods is owned by Amazon, their parent company, which means Jeff Bezos is behind this.
