CBC News 06/24/2020

Walmart Canada said it is investigating the sale of items with the slogans “All Lives Matter” and “Blue Lives Matter” after receiving complaints on social media. The phrases were developed as a response to the Black Lives Matter movement, which has advocated for an end to racial inequality in society and abuse of power in law enforcement.

Remove it,” tweeted user Beth MacDonnell.
