This is us?

Take a close look at the back of the tickets the Co-op is handing out for their Fuel Up to Win contest. You’ll see the logo of some of the biggest food conglomerates in the world, busy pushing sugar, GMOs, worker exploitation and industrial agrobusiness as only soulless multinationals can.

According to the Federated Co-operatives Ltd. website, Co-ops “are unique in the business world because they are owned and controlled by the people they serve.”

Tofino, i have to ask: Coca-Cola, KRAFT, P&G … is this what we stand for?

  1. Screw the co-op! They see about $5 of my money a month.

    I was actually thinking just this morning about the impacts on the environment for each tourist we attract to this town? I was considering the fuel emissions that each vehicle creates just to get here. I might calculate it one day, to see what the true environmental costs are.
