Jarnhamar said:TMECs recent decision to drop 5 companies from their product list because the companies are owned by a parent company that deals with firearms in the US is bullshit as well. The CEO claimed that MEC got thousands of emails asking them when they will drop companies like Camelback and Bolle. I call bullshit because I can't picture "thousands" of Canadians realizing that Camelbak was associated with firearms. I sure as hell didn't.
The company made a big scene of discussing the issue and taking imput from their loyal customers, where they finally decided to drop the companies last night. Total virtue signalling. When you look at the majority of feedback across their social media it's 99% against them dropping companies. It looks like MEC just tried to jump on the anti-NRA train. Hoping they suffer for it.
Over on CGN(a haven for actual far right opinions) there is a thread laying out the way to cancel you MEC membership, and they pointed out that MEC seems to be suffering more than profiting from their latest move...
It seems rather disingenuous(lacking in frankness, candor, or sincerity; falsely or hypocritically ingenuous; insincere for MEC to make a stand against Vista Outdoors when most of their product comes from China and various and sundry SE Asian countries. I like a lot of MEC products, but I won't be shopping there any more. Call me old school/uneducated/plebeian but I think businesses should focus on getting me quality products at reasonable prices, not leading social justice crusades.
