The Canadian Friends of Burma (CFOB) is on a roll.

Sears Canada and the Bay, two recent targets of CFOB boycott campaigns, have stopped buying apparel from the Asian dictatorship also known as Myanmar.

And CFOB had set its sights on Wal-Mart Canada when the retail giant announced it had stopped buying from Myanmar.

“I don’t know why they would be directing their action at us,” says Wal-Mart Canada PR director Andrew Pelletier.

Next on the list for CFOB? Montreal-based Reitmans.
