Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs to address incident at Winnipeg grocery store

The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC) will hold a news conference alongside a Winnipeg grocery store to address an incident that took place on Tuesday.

AMC and representatives from Foodfare will speak at 11:30 a.m.

According to a news release from AMC, an incident took place at the Foodfare location at 905 Portage Avenue, and multiple staff were hospitalized.

Meantime, Winnipeg police say they will release more information about the incident Wednesday.

The press conference comes nearly two weeks after another altercation between a Foodfare employee and a customer over alleged shoplifting at the same store. The employee was suspended, and AMC terminated a relationship with Foodfare where AMC purchased food from the grocery store to create hampers for families in its Jordan’s Principle program.

AMC said it is in the process of working with the owners of Foodfare, and the business is implementing cultural sensitivity training for their staff and working to draft a policy to address shoplifting.

More details to come.
