Shopify is a Canadian e-commerce company headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario. The company reports that it has hundreds of thousands of merchants using its platform, with total gross merchandise volume exceeding $63 billion. You can read about Shopify here.
Shopify has been such a Canadian success story, the Canadian Federal government asked Shopify CEO, Tobias Lutke, to chair Canada's digital industries strategy group.
In 2017, #DeleteShopify was created because Shopify supports Breitbart News. Breitbart News has emerged as a powerful voice for the U.S. alt-right movement and has been accused by its detractors of propagating white supremacist, anti-Semitic and misogynistic views. Steve Bannon, U.S. President Donald Trump's former chief strategist, was previously Breitbart's executive chair.
You can read more about Mr. Lutke's response to the backlash here.
Mr. Lutke has continued to support this ideology despite the fact this line of thinking goes against everything Canadians should believe in. We decided to bring back #DeleteShopify and we are not going away until this USA/Canada Trade War has ended or Mr. Lutke has been removed from Canada's Economic Strategy Table.
The alt-right movement has now started a Trade War against Canada that is escalating. Please sign the petition to help us fight back. If you would like to contact Tobias Lutke directly, you can reach him on Twitter @tobi.
