Boycotting the boycotters

Ezra Levant calls for Canadians to boycott "The Gap" for its boycott of oil from Alberta oilsands.

However, in later breaking news, the Gap and Levi Strauss reportedly "clarified" that they are NOT part of any oilsands boycott.  Apparently their enviromental positions have been misrepresented by the eco-nutjobs at Forest Ethics.

Wheew! That's good. I don't buy at The Gap but I'd sure hate to have to boycott Levis.

Update. On the other hand, Ezra says that The Gap and Levis are lying when they deny boycotting the oilsands:
I like the AEG guys a lot. But The Gap and Levis speak with a forked tongue. They put out anti-oilsands comments to appeal to American lefties. And then they tell AEG what they want to hear. They're saying two different things at the same time. In other words, The Gap is lying.
It's not too shocking that a company that was built on shocking labour practices might actually fib for PR purposes, is it?

I heard Walgreens was boycotting as well. Can anyone confirm? If so I hope all snowbirds will act accordingly
