Food Insecurity is everyone’s concern!
Published on December 05, 2022
MCW members are invited to TAKE ACTION and SIGN this petition organized by the Canadian Labour Congress calling for grocery CEOs to bring down food prices.
Montrealers and Canadians across the country are struggling to put food on the table. One in five are skipping meals due to rising costs at the checkout. Inflation may be stabilizing yet grocery store profits are continuing to sky-rocket with large food chains in particular reporting billions of dollars in excessive profits.
There is something wrong with this picture.
Yes, transportation and supply issues do impact imported food prices- but not to the tune of literally billions of dollars.
Everyone is impacted- with low-income families and the working poor the most vulnerable.
Here is your chance to speak up for fair and honest pricing and against unwarranted and excessive corporate profits.
