The Hub Roundtable: The Liberals pick a fight with grocers

Alex Scholten, co-owner of the Victory Meat & Produce Market Ltd., is shown at his store in Fredericton, Monday, April 10, 2023. Stephen MacGillivray/The Canadian Press.

This week’s Hub Roundtable discusses the federal government’s demand of major Canadian grocers to come up with a plan to stabilize prices before Thanksgiving. Is this a sign of economic illiteracy from the government or poll-driven desperation? We also discuss the 2023 Global Progress Action Summit being held in Montreal and take stock of the current state of Western progressivism.

The Roundtable features Hub executive director Rudyard Griffiths, Hub editor-at-large, Sean Speer, and Hub editor-in-chief, Stuart Thomson. The Roundtable is produced and edited by The Hub’s content editor, Amal Attar Guzman.
