  1. SheIn is also one of the only clothing companies that people can actually afford in Canada. Trust me, I would love to spend some money on Canadian-made products, but I can't afford to spend half my paycheck on an outfit.
    Also, why target this company when there are thousands of companies that do the same?

  2. No one should buy from ANY Chinese companies right now. Their human rights records are terrible. Why is having cheap, fast fashion, and other throw away items, for a couple of bucks less, worth enslaving people? Buy at home and the money comes back into your community and makes your roads, schools, hospitals, police services etc. stronger. It’s supports your neighbours. Buy overseas crap or from companies that are owned by foreign billionaires, and you’ve burned that money. It does nothing for your future, it just allows some selfish arrogant immoral jackass to destroy other people and to buy more yachts.
    Which would you rather have?
    A new yacht for an evil monster or a good school for your kids?

  3. The store of "China using child to labor make clothes" is very false. Every Chinese knows that children in China are like the sun rising in the morning, and they are the hope of tomorrow. The country will strive to cultivate every child and never neglect their studies. Chinese children not only learn early but also learn a lot. They not only have to study many hours of classes every day, but also participate in other extracurricular activities. The pressure on Chinese chiles is very heavy, unlike Canadian children who play every day.
    The investment of Chinese people in their children is enormous. They all hope that their children can become successful when they grow up. Education investment is very important for Chinese people, just like Chinese people like to invest in the real estate industry (perhaps this metaphor is not vert appropriate). They all like to have a beautiful harvest in the future.
    No Chinese person would be so foolish as to let their children work and earn a little money. The Chinese law also does not allow this, and whoever violates the law will receive severe punishment.

  4. My condolences to the millions of Muslim Uyghurs in Xinjiang who lost their
    – lands, religious practices and dignity,
    and now become genocide victims of the Chinese regime with indisputable evidence from:
    – hacked Xinjiang Police Files,
    – satelite images,
    – eye witnesses,
    – survivors,
    – Chinese official documents and
    – multiple press investigations since 2008.

  5. Shein should withdraw from Canada. Along with all other Chinese companies. China should also not send any students to universities in Canada. China, and Hong Kong, should investigate all trade with and investment in Canada with a view to deciding as to the advisability of continuing.
