    Boys urge McBoycott over softwood lumber dispute - CBC News
    Apart from the website, they've coined a slogan: 'Yo, yo, yo, yo, give us our dough. No McD on December Three' and are selling T-shirts and stickers.

    They've rounded up support from the National Union of Public and General Employees, the B.C. Carpenters Union and provincial and federal politicians, among others.

    'We have over 300 supportive e-mails from people, even people in the U.S.,' Luke said.

    The boys' parents said they're doing whatever they can to support the campaign.

    'Other Canadians are frustrated with this and this is something that the average Canadian can do,' said Luke's mother, Karen McAndles-Davis.

    Canada insists there can be no talks on cross-border lumber until the U.S. accepts the repeated NAFTA rulings, while Washington insists on a negotiated settlement.
