“Every year I read about some lowlife who steals a Poppy donation box before Remembrance Day
Very sadly, this year’s only difference is that it happened at my work (Beer Store at Elmvale Mall off St. Laurent) this past Sunday & right behind my back!” uploader Steve Cool wrote.

“This guy asked me for a plastic bag (we charge 5 cents for them) , which I SHOULD have found suspicious as he wasn’t buying any beer…then I went to dump our empty can bin which was overflowing. As I’m doing that, this piece of shit puts the Poppy bin in the bag and heads out,” he added.
The video isn’t the best quality, but you can see the man appear to put something in the bag before heading out.
“I apologize to the members of our local Legion for letting this happen, but luckily the cash was emptied out on Friday or Saturday, so the degenerate didn’t make off with as much as he likely could have,” Cool said.
Every year I read about some lowlife who steals a Poppy donation box before Remembrance Day Very sadly, this year's…
While it’s good to know that the cash was emptied out earlier, stealing any money from our veterans is just a disgusting act.
“If you see this guy anywhere in Ottawa, give him a solid kick in the junk for me and our local Veterans,” Steve Cool wrote to conclude his post.
There is no mention of any police involvement or if they are investigating.
