Claudia Tenolds continues doing business with Ripudaman Singh Malik
If Calgary based Amos and Andes owner Claudia Tenolds appears to be willing to do business with anyone, no matter how questionable their beliefs or actions.

Her actions make her supposed socially responsible business practices seem to be based solely upon her suppliers avoiding being convicted in a Canadian court.

And ignoring the presumption of innocence is somehow "socially responsible" ?

True, but I wouldn't want to do business with James Roszko since he was presumed innocent. I'm talking about Malik's history of supporting violence.

Could someone please post a list of things we are suggested to boycott, I can't keep up. On a related note can I eat grapes yet?
