Wants an explanation, apologiesA public relations firm that speaks for Party City issued a statement on the weekend that said the company does not condone the behaviour and is committed to creating a fair and inclusive work environment. Company officials were not available for comment Monday, but have indicated they will release more information when it becomes available. Sikorski, who has been working at the party supply store while putting himself through the University of Alberta, said no one should have to face such treatment. He wants an explanation as well as apologies from the person who wrote the Valentine and from company management, he said. "The name is Party City for Pete's sake. It should be about a friendly and welcoming atmosphere." Sikorski said he is still not on the company's work schedule and isn't sure he wants to go back. Support from family, friends, strangers and community leaders has helped him speak out about what happened, he said. "It is terrifying being seen in the public eye like this and for something as horrible as this hate speech."
