A Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacy in downtown Toronto is facing backlash over a now-deleted job posting for a "volunteer" position in the store. 

"My first reaction was this has to be a joke," said John Gunn, who has been a customer at the pharmacy, located at King and Peter streets, for more than a decade.
