Yes, I am somewhat torn about that. A boycott is a legitimate tactic, but it works best if it is organized and very public. Businesses hate that kind of bad publicity.

Right now, I have a different strategy for when I am a regular customer of businesses that post anti-LRT signs or whose owners make anti-LRT statements. I have been a regular customer of Gilbert's and Dennigers long before LRT became a political issue. My current strategy is to make a copy of my receipt, and send it in with a letter to the business owner saying that I am a regular customer who is offended by their anti-Hamilton political beliefs. And ask for a meeting to discuss this.

I may not change any minds, but business owners will quite often tone down the public proclamation of their their anti-LRT beliefs when regular customers complain.
