Marché Jean-Talon becoming Loblaws

tohtem | Aug 13, 2012 07:11 AM

Interesting articles in La Presse this morning:

The administration is making life hard for Jacques Rémillard (Ferme Jacques et Diane) one of the few remaining true producers. Mr. Jacques cannot pay a 200$ a day fine or buy a 65000$ truck right now. On the other hand new farmer markets are opening everywhere a craving for real producers. Jacques is bound to go elsewhere. It's going to be a great loss for the Market.

If real producers like Jacques get out of JMT, what's going to remain of the Marché? A Loblaws with paying parking?
