I mean if Tim Hortons can use the "we're Canadian" logo and insignia, not sure why RW co can't.

Just understand it's imported products sold at higher markups. What makes something a Canadian company is up for debate.

Macs is owned by circle k anyway. And I think future shop was owned by best buy. Their flyers were literally identical with different colors.

Tim Hortons is owned by Restaurant Brands International which is owned by 3G Capital, a Brazilian Investment Firm that owns Kraft/Heinz Foods and Anheuser-Busch among others.

That being said, I suspect most of the 'food' (and i use this term loosely) served at tim hortons in canada is actually grown in canada. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong.

But even then, Tim Horton's marketing is annoying and deceitful given their ownership structure, and I don't think many canadians hold it in particularly high regard. Every time it comes up in conversation it's the opposite. They can say "We're canadian" because the intermediate company between Tim Hortons and 3G Capital, RBI, has to have at least 30% canadians on its board and must maintain its oakville headquarters - those were the legal conditions which allowed the Tim Hortons/Burger King merger that created RBI to take place.

At the end of the day, it's either you support a company HQ'd in Canada or you don't

It's a you do or you don't ...... and you can logically make your own decision on whether or not it's helping the Country/Economy long term or short term through paying taxes, paying salaries, building Canadian patriotism, etc etc....

If a Canadian company has a factory in Canada but outsources all their IT and CSR to India, is it still Canadian?
If a Canadian company has a HQ and designers in Canada but outsources their production to India, is it still Canadian?

I guess there no REAL answer, it all bowls down to what YOUR personal thoughts are

Yes, companies can be MORE Canadian than other companies... but at the end of the day, to me personally, Canadian is Canadian. I will support anything with a red flag that delivers to my wants and needs

now let's buy some rockin' PANTS!

I am talking historically. Prior to the complete sell-off and decline of Canada owned, Canada manufactured starting in the 1990's. Future Shop got sold to Best Buy, Best Buy slowly started opening stores near Future Shops, they got rid of the higher salaries and commissions for Best Buy employees and promoted more American products, and then bam, they closed Future Shop, turned everything Best Buy.

My only point is, there is fewer and fewer Canadian owned and operated brands. The long term health of a country and economy is now dependent on foreign brands and foreign capital. Not to say RW&Co is the be-all, end-all of Canadian companies, but it is still an actual canadian company at the end of the day.

Been an RW&Co customer for the last 14yrs, my wardrobe is atleast 50% full of their clothes. Premium quality clothing and with these sales, you can't go wrong. And ofcourse, support Canadian business.

I pick up RW&Co clothing here and there over the years. But I would say "Premium quality" is a rather strong word. I would say good quality, but not any better than some other popular mainstream clothing brands or good quality brands you find at department stores for example.

Mind you, I never seem to have issues with my clothing whether it is a generally perceived low quality brand or high quality brand.

I don't know why it's deceitful. What % of the company has to be owned by Canadians for it to be "Canadian" to you?

I've wanted to buy pants from RW over the years, but I'm not 6 foot tall with 32" legs. I hate how all their pants are only 32" length which would require me to get them hemmed.
