Here’s why Canada’s richest family is getting corporate welfare from the Liberals

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

This week, the federal Liberals handed out $12M in corporate welfare to a company that had an operating profit of $2.5B in 2018.

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?

Here’s why: Loblaws is one of the largest donors to the organized anti-conservative machinery of the far left-wing Broadbent Institute.

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.

Soooo, just wondering…has the price of bread actually declined in recent months/weeks?

I thought the Liberals & the NDP were political rivals, not partners.

With that assumption in mind, I am missing the connection between:

a) the federal Trudeau Liberal government showering Loblaws with $12 million tax-payer dollars and

b) Loblaws financially supporting the Broadbent Institute (1), which is indirectly helping the provincial Alberta NDP Premier Notley’s re-election campaign.

Why would the Liberals reward Loblaws for supporting the NDP?

How is the Broadbent Institute helping the Trudeau Liberals?

(1) the Broadbent Institute is named after Ed Broadbent, Leader of the NDP from 1975-1989.

Much as I despise this type of political activity,it won’t make me “never shop at Superstore again”. The reason, the only alternative is grocery stores with MUCH higher prices, so I’ll continue to shop at Superstore and save about 25% on my grocery Bill. Does Loblaw’s also donate to the Trudeau Foundation? Bless Sheila Gunn-Reid for her windup,stating exactly that most of us have to shop where the cheapest prices are, that truly is the difference between the Rebel Media and the MSM, the Rebel understands reality, the msm seems to live in a fantasy world.

When I voted after work yesterday, the advanced polling station that I went to was quite busy! It took me about 15-minutes to vote, with many more rushing in. When I left, the line up was longer than when I first arrived there. You could feel that change was in the air. My millennial daughter and her husband went earlier in the day and they said they were in and out.

Trudeau reminds me of Kerry in the states. The water boy for the globalists!

I’m wondering if Trudeau was Christmas vacationing with Galen and family off Florida coast where nearby the Watson’s live in a gated Billionaire’s Only Complex. Someone needs to follow through on THAT VACATION like all others ends up with Trudeau flauntingly giving way Canadian Tax dollars to Billionaires. One wonders if he knows the ship is sinking and a pay back is forth coming after the disaster.

Do the Liberals think this issue will throw us of the scent of the SNC Lavolin caper ,Trudeau’s corrupt government and throwing his two former Cabinet Ministers out of Caucus?
It just seems a little suspicious to create another unpopular policy decision at this time.

Ah, yes. Mr Middle Class [ WE’LL ASK THE WEALTHIEST 1% TO PAY A BIT MORE SO MIDDLE CLASS FAMILIES CAN PAY LESS https://www.liberal.ca/help-the-middle-class/ ] is actually one of the 1% who hands money over to his 1% pals and some Canadians are too stupid to realize who is who.

Scheer better use the 1% solution in his campaign.

If I lived in Alberta, I would have slept outside the polling station last night so I could be the first one to vote her out.
In fact, there should have been gatherings to do just to send a big message she can’t leave fast enough.

Superstore increased their prices in January on every item in the store.
I’m in a small town and I boycott it as much as possible. So do some of the Superstore employees!

I was one of the first at the advance poll in Ontario to vote the miserable wench Wynne out of office and out of official party status. Voting was heavy before election day. Hopefully brisk turnouts in advance polls in Alberta will be harbinger of Notley’s destruction.

C. White,

I voted today in Beaverlodge, was about 7 people in front of me and more coming in after me at 1600 hrs.

I’m hoping Albertans don’t fall for the stupid character assassinations. I’m not a real big Kenney fan, but it’s all we have to work with right now.

Loblaw’s kissing Trudeau butt, I will never shop there again, not that I ever shop there anyway.

“ill” not I’ll. Frick, I wish I could turn off google auto-grammar.

As far as the Alberta connection is concerned, did anyone vote at today’s advance poll? If so, what was the line-up like?

I was at the Peace River poll by 9:05 and in a line-up. Got to vote twenty minutes later, with a line-up behind me and more coming in the door. Not usual for a first day advance poll. I think, traditionally, a well attended advance poll bodes I’ll for the governing party. Here’s hoping.

Then Loblaw’s Lobby does not matter, if that is the case.

Personally, I go with my local cooperative.

You won’t see details of your report on MSM in Canada since they are so much part of the deep state and Laurentian elite that is running this country. It’s too late for Notley, but Trudeau and his Liebranos are counting on uninformed MSM-watching Cdns to re-elect him so his billionaire cronies can continue to nickel and dime us into financial ruin while they bathe in fetus blood whilst enjoying their harems of cherubs and obedient minions.

The Liberals have been running this charity for generations. It’s called Millions for Greedy Billionaires.

The Conservatives do the same thing. Before the last election our MP, Pierre Lemieux, went around with a shopping cart handing out millions to local millionaires.

Poor little bastards with no political influence (us) paying the rotten bastards who have it.
