Throwback Thursday. 20 years ago this Easter Saturday, Loblaws arrested the Easter Bunny for handing out anti-greed chocolate eggs and leaflets describing how Loblaws could actually work to end the root causes of inequality. It was part of a lengthy campaign to expose Loblaws as a corporate hypocrite for supporting those political parties that perpetuate poverty and hunger, and then profiting off of food drives (during which they also busted Santa and elves, Robin Hood, and the Great Pumpkin). Two decades later, Loblaws has admitted to criminal price-fixing, but has not been held truly accountable.
