Idiot running Canada: Tax the grocery stores to lower food prices

Post by dan_s »

How is adding additional expenses for grocery stores going to lower food prices???

TORONTO — The federal government is demanding major Canadian grocers come up with a plan to stabilize prices, drawing pushback from the food industry.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Thursday said the call comes as Canadians continue to struggle with inflation.

“Large grocery chains are making record profits. Those profits should not be made on the backs of people who are struggling to feed their families,” he said, speaking in London, Ont., following a caucus retreat.

He said the government will be asking the five largest grocery companies, — Loblaw, Metro, Empire, Walmart and Costco — to come up with a plan by Thanksgiving.

“If their plan doesn’t provide real relief for the middle class and people working hard to join it, then we will take further action and we are not ruling anything out including tax measures.”
