Critics and members of the opposition have expressed concern over the federal government’s talk of potentially imposing additional taxes on major grocers. They argue that this move could worsen the affordability crisis faced by Canadians who are already grappling with rising food prices.

At the conclusion of the Liberal party’s three-day national caucus retreat in London, Ontario, on Sept. 14, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that his government is exploring various tools, including potential tax measures, to compel major grocery retailers to stabilize food prices.

The same day, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) called on Mr. Trudeau to “rescind his grocery tax threat.”
