After the bread price-fixing issue, you'd think they'd learn, but when you sell millions of dollars of product, then get slapped on wrist with tiny fines, there is no incentive to change. As for their claimed 2-5% profit margins, think of this contrast: Chinese grocery store, a large one. Corn on the cob, $3.00 for TEN pieces, partially-shucked and packaged. LARGE cobs. Then Metro. $3.99 for 5 cobs small and less fresh than the Chinese store offering. $0.80 a cob for an inferior product versus $0.30 at the Chinese store. Top of that, FAKE sales abound at the Canadian stores where they claim to have a 30% reductions, but the product is never sold at the "normal" price they cite. That is illegal. But they won't get charged because the people who own these chains (Weston, etc) are pals with Federal liberals.

We paid 15 cents on Friday, but we did have to shuck them.

You're just angry at the whole world, aren't you? Blacks, gays, women, Liberals . . you really must be a lost brother of Wakefield. He has the same hatreds as you do, plus a few more.

But no one is going to take either one of you seriously: You're a racist and bigot and he's a bigot and a liar. Someone who was able "to retire at the age of 50" would not be shopping around to find corn at 15 cents a cob.

You, on the other hand, must have a whole lot of time to shop around for the lowest price of anything . . . . and it takes you away from your computer for a time.
(which is a bonus for all the rest of us).

Crap. Wakefield has consistently shown support for homosexual rights. Repent M.I. :-)

My millionaire parents used to clip coupons. Never known M.I. to lie and I look forwards to his posts. Karen Eileen Gordon has been caught lying dozens of times and is a AUK award winner.

I don't hate anyone, Karen ... I'm just intolerant of idiots.

That really eats at you, doesn't it Karen? Good.

And who said anything about shopping around? Regular store ... and because
he had to go on Thursday, we hadn't even seen the flyers.

"What the market will bear" is one of the chief dictums of mercantile ethics,
so it's pretty much a guarantee your cobs will cost more than KKK's and taste
better.

No, you attracted to them. I've watched the level of discourse you have with the lowest of the low posters to these newsgroups. You could go on for 10 pages with them.

Actually, I think it's just another one of your lies, Wakeford. One thing we all learn here early is that only the very foolish post under their real name and leave themselves open for 'review' on the internet. People like you know that none of your claims can be checked - so you continue to spin lies.

Don't explain, Wakeford . . . someone who whines for years about his hydro bill and gas prices takes the bus to the laundromat and looks for corn at $.15 a cob . . . . is not someone who had enough money to retire at 50. Laid off at 50 and collecting disability . . . maybe.

I'm not attracted to you at all. I was hoping that you disappear in
ignominious shame when you finally had to admit that I wasn't really a
former poster, like you claimed for most of a decade.

posters to these newsgroups.
Posters to can.politics, from high to low:

-> Most posters
:
:
:
-> Neo nazis and racists
:
:
:
-> Karen Gordon
-> erm ... that's it
Post by b***@gmail.com

So what Karen has just confirmed is that she:

A) Has no sense of shame;
B) Has no long-term memory;
C) Doesn't understand irony;
D) Has two or more of the above conditions.

Absolute truth ... I left work for the last time at age 50 years, 5 months
and 27 days.

The government continued to pay me for over 4 months, as I burned off my
accumulated vacation and overtime.

That's why you dropped "Karen Gordon", Karen Gordon?

Don't explain, Wakeford [see above] . . . someone who whines for years
about his hydro bill and gas prices ...
Because of criminal incompetence by the people setting the prices, not
because I couldn't afford them.

... takes the bus to the laundromat ...
Where did you get this from? I literally don't recall taking a bus to do
laundry in my life ... the only time I didn't have facilities in the
building where I lived was a summer in Ottawa during university where I had
to walk for ... checking google maps ... four minutes.

So much projection, so little reasoning or sense.

They managed a balanced budget which Trudeau also promised but has totally failed to deliver. Harper never marched in a homosexual pride parade for deviants unlike Justin. Harper also brought in mandatory minimums for illegal possesion of firearms and child porn. The Liberals brag they have reduced the prison population.
