The Reddit Group

They’re apart of a growing online movement, r/loblawsisoutofcontrol. This is a subreddit dedicated to calling out the unethical business practices of loblaws as well as other food retailers.

Alongside the subreddit comes e-4974, an online petition to call upon the house of parliament to address concerns about the cost of living, especially regarding essential goods, that are “particularly impacting low and middle-income families, persons with disabilities, and fixed-income households”

The Demands of People

– Implement strong anti-trust laws to prevent monopolistic practices in the food retail sector, including a rigorous scrutiny of mergers and acquisitions with the goal of ensuring they do not lead to increased market concentration;
– Explore the possibility of implementing price controls or other regulatory mechanisms to prevent excessive price gouging on essential food items; and
– Mandate Loblaws and Walmart to sign the Grocery Code of Conduct, and provide definitive, tangible consequences for refusal to sign.
