CHARLIE ANGUS' LETTER TO SUPPORTERS - APRIL 11, 2019
"My mom is a miner's daughter. She grew up in a different middle class than the Prime Minister." - Charlie Angus
My Mom called me last night. She couldn't believe the Prime Minister gave $12 million to Loblaws.
The Weston family is the second richest family in Canada. They've been involved in the fight against raising the minimum wage and were found guilty of price-fixing on bread. So today, on behalf of my mom, I asked the Prime Minister to explain why taxpayers are subsidizing such a massively powerful corporation.
It's about the power of lobbyists.
I exposed the news that Loblaws lobbyists attended the Prime Minister's exclusive cash for access fundraiser along with senior staff for the Minister of Environment.
It shouldn't be this way.
I will continue to fight hard against the corrosive power of the 1%.
We're in this together, Charlie
