Poppy veteran kicked out of Costco

Costco staff told a war veteran he had to leave a Langley, B.C., store for selling remembrance poppies.

The retail company told Wayne Hamilton it has set days when poppies can be sold on their premises.

Hamilton is not that upset about the incident and says he is just thankful he can sell enough to raise funds for fellow veterans.
