Walmart pulls onesie after complaints garment was offensive to Indigenous people
Walmart Canada says it is pulling a onesie off its shelves after receiving complaints that said the garment was offensive to Indigenous people.
The onesie had the phrase ``I Still Live With My Parents'' written on it with illustrations of teepees and an arrow.
Walmart Canada says the graphic on the item does not represent its beliefs and has no place in its stores.
Some people took to Twitter saying the garment was offensive because Indigenous children disproportionately go to foster care.
Others suggested it was insensitive given Canada's history with residential schools.
Anika Malik, a spokeswoman for Walmart, says the company apologizes for any unintended offence.
Three goals in the first 2:35 of the game propelled the IceDogs to a 5-2 exhibition win in Kitchener. Stephen Dhillon was outstanding in goal as Billy Burke's Dogs faced a large number of shorthanded situations.
Ondrej Machala scored two goals and added an assist as the IceDogs dropped a 7-5 decision to the Kitchener Rangers. The third game of the pre-season was played before a great crowd at the Fleming Centre in Beamsville.
Two first period goals in under a minute were not enough as Barrie held off the IceDogs 4-2 Thursday night. Drew Hunter and Andrew Bruder both scored their first goals in the opening twenty.
