NDP statement on Money Mart suspending its cash-for-gift-cards scheme

“We’re glad that New Democrats and public pressure forced Money Mart to do the right thing and suspend this greedy program.  This pilot project was wrong from the start and preyed on the most vulnerable in our society.   New Democrats still call on the government to investigate how Money Mart was allowed to get away with this morally corrupt practice and ensure it doesn’t happen again,” said NDP Consumer Services critic Jagmeet Singh.
