The grant to Loblaws, a grocery store company run by the Westons, one of Canada's wealthiest families, was to “help” them upgrade their freezers to a more environmentally friendly system.
For context, the Westons are richer than Donald Trump by about $10 billion dollars!
Last year, Loblaws was dinged nearly $400M for using a Barbadian bank to avoid paying Canadian taxes. And, in 2017, the company was given immunity - after they rolled over on their co-conspirators - for their part in a price-fixing scheme that artificially raised the price of bread for over 15 years.
Why is this ethically challenged family getting handouts of our hard-earned money from the Liberals?
And today I’ll show you how those generous sponsorships to the Broadbent Institute, are helping Notley run her negative re-election campaign based on character assassination and demonization, through the NDP’s media and research arm, Press Progress.
It’s enough to make you never shop at a Superstore ever again.
