voted #2, I'd not heard of this latest political correctness overreach but it doesn't surprise me, this is the kind of stuff I don't pay any mind to in terms of getting upset because it's likely not going to amount to any significant change on any side.

Retailers won’t allow it. The holidays are big business from cards, to gifts to clothing to food.  Families like reasons to gather and celebrate. I was surprised this latest wokeness began in Canada.

Yup, I certainly wasn't, and believe me; ordinary, rational Canadians like myself apologize for this export.
