Boycott Costco

Subject: Boycott Costco

Dear Mr. Duffy,

I will not lecture Costco on the cowardice it exhibited today when bullied by the even more cowardly Newfoundland premier, and the very public disintegration of its integrity under no greater weight than the less than almighty Newfoundland dollar. All in all a thoroughly despicable display. But I will lecture you on the lack of wisdom in your management even where profit is concerned, and your damaging the very fabric of our free society.

By reneging on your promise to us, you may have averted a small scale boycott in Newfoundland, but you have just stirred up the beginning of a full scale boycott against Costco throughout North America, in both Canada and the United States. I will personally make sure that it will happen.

Further, Costco has betrayed and undermined the principle and spirit of free enterprise, by setting a precedence of allowing government to dictate to a company what it must sell, or else.

See you on the battlefield.

Anthony Marr

Dear Mr. Duffy,

I hear that Costco is in the process of removing all seal oil
capsules from the shelf. Is this true? If so, when will it take
effect? Please let me know. As soon as this is done, I will resume
shopping at Costco, and refer others to you.

Thank you.
