Canadian Tire employee no longer with company after confrontation streamed on Facebook
A Canadian Tire employee involved in an incident at the east Regina location no longer works for the company, according to a tweet sent out by the company on Saturday.
Kamao Cappo was trying to buy a chainsaw from the store on Wednesday. The employee accused him of trying to steal the chainsaw and forced him to leave the store. The entire incident was caught on-video, and has sparked outrage on social media after Cappo posted the video on Facebook.
“The employee involved in the matter has not been working in the store since the incident and he is no longer with Canadian Tire,” the tweet from Canadian Tire said.
