During the height of inflation last year, Loblaws was making an extra $1 million every single day!
Now Loblaws has further increased prices after ending its very short price freeze on its in-house brand, selling 5 chicken breasts at nearly $40, at a time when more Canadians are obliged to use food banks than ever in the history of the country.
This is ultimate greed, but together we can stop it.
Canadians are now demanding the parliament investigates Loblaws’ profiteering from both the pandemic and the inflation to skyrocket their earnings at the expense of the Canadian people. Join the call today and let’s make sure Loblaws, the parent company of Real Canadian Superstore and Shoppers Drug Mart, understands it can’t exploit consumers.
Canadian Parliament: Investigate Loblaws pricing and stop consumers’ exploitation by grocery chains!
When Loblaws Co fixed the price of bread for over 14 years, it made more than $1,400 extra from each customer. In return, the chain gave its customers a $25 gift card, to be used at Loblaw stores.
The federal Competition Bureau launched a study on the spike in food prices but it's not enough – it’s been 5 years since the Bureau ‘studied’ Loblaws price fixing and it still has no answers.
Nor was it enough when the grocery CEOs were questioned by Members of Parliament in early March.
What we need is a full investigation into Loblaws’ grocery pricing.
Sign now and share widely – we’ll make sure the Parliament hears our call.
When Ekō (formerly SumOfUs) members speak out, the Canadian Parliament listens. When a member of parliament introduced a motion for Canada to ban single-use plastics, we delivered over 100,000 signatures to Environment Minister McKenna, as was shown on national TV and radio. And the motion was passed thanks to your support!
And we can get parliament to address this food price hike, but only if you take action now, and share this widely.
