Last week, Timmins-James Bay NDP MP Charlie Angus took a shot in the House of Commons at high gas prices. This week, it’s what he calls grocery stores going through the roof.
He noted there are claims that Vladimir Putin’s illegal war in Ukraine is driving fears of global food shortages.
“But those fears are the perfect cover for the giant food conglomerates who are jacking up prices not because of inflation, but to gouge us,” he said during Members’ Statements.
Angus says it’s time to take on the corporate giants and get money back into the pockets of working class families.
He also took a shot at the Conservative Party and the perceived front runner to be its next leader, Pierre Poilievre.
“Well, their would-be leader says invest your savings in crypto Ponzi schemes to beat inflation. I mean, a financial genius this guy is not.”
