Canadian Tire and our authorized dealers do not condone the anti-Trudeau protests in some of our store parking lots. The use of our logo, as well as unauthorized rallies or protests in our stores or parking lots are strictly prohibited,” the company tweeted.

“We take this matter seriously and are doing everything in our power to enforce our rights as private property owners, including cooperating with local law enforcement to pursue criminal prosecutions where appropriate.”

Our stores are a place of business and we are taking all measures at our disposal to ensure the safety of our customers and store staff.

Earlier this month, an invitation to a “F*** Trudeau party” was tweeted out in the parking lot of the Canadian Tire store at 2510 Hyde Park Gate in Oakville on May 13th.

The invitation featured Canadian Tire’s logo, leading people to believe the company was connected to the protests and/or wasn’t doing enough to prevent them. This, in turn, led to calls for buyers to boycott Canadian Tire’s stores, although the company insisted it was not involved in the protests.


We’re sorry, but this video could not be loaded.

Canadian Tire is not affiliated with this event,” the company tweeted on May 14. “Local law enforcement agencies were on the scene Saturday and have been authorized to take necessary action to protect the safety of customers, store staff and community members.”

Still, many Canadians felt that the company had not gone far enough to prevent protesters from using Canadian Tire’s parking lot.

This is a very weak, passive response to what could become a major problem for many Canadians. Make it better,” wrote one Twitter user.

“@CanadianTire this is disgusting and your failure to evict them from your property is shameful,” wrote another Twitter user.

Nobody can tell @Canadian tire “I didn’t have enough warning that a bunch of hooligans were about to damage their brand name by holding a hateful rally in their parking lot,” added another Twitter user. “They had received many warnings and even promised that it wouldn’t happen. What a corporate disaster.”
