by Canadian Press

George Weston Ltd. and Loblaw Companies Ltd. "should keep checking the mailroom" for upcoming legal action after they implicated Sobeys Inc. in an alleged industry-wide bread price-fixing scheme that goes "right to the heart of the trust" between Canadians and their grocers, the CEO of the grocery chain said Thursday.

"I have been in way too many meetings with lawyers," said Michael Medline, CEO of Empire Company Ltd. and Sobeys. The meetings have ramped up since Wednesday, when court documents containing the nature of the allegations were made public, he added.

"We are assessing all of our options," he said. "I'm not going to tip our hand in terms of what our entire strategy is, but I think Weston (and Loblaw) should keep checking the mailroom."
