that's a fucking beautiful link. i don't do twitter but that link is telling. that asshat CEO has created quite a mess, good for him. 

i was in Victoria coop last week at about 5 o clock. i couldn't help but notice there were nothing but white people working there, and about 20 or so customers milling about. least crowded i've maybe ever seen the place. the sheer whiteness was disturbing though. they really should do something about it.

I suppose they could move the store to Surrey.

i see the dead bird website ain't nearly as diverse as the old coop is. there should be a boycott.

Yeah there was a survey done a few years ago and turns out "representation in advertising" is what POC are waiting for when considering a move to Victoria.
