The president of Loblaw Limited has apologized for a lawsuit the grocery chain launched against the driver of a van involved in a horrific crash in northern New Brunswick two years ago.
Allan Leighton says the company won't pursue the suit against Wayne Lord or the company that owned the van involved in the crash that killed seven members of the Bathurst High boy's basketball team and Lord's wife.
Leighton says Loblaw apologizes for a decision he says was clearly made without consideration of the specifics of the accident.
The Bathurst team was returning from a game in Moncton when their van struck a Loblaw truck during a snowstorm.

Organizations: Loblaw Limited

Geographic location: New Brunswick, Moncton

    i find it interresting that it took loblaws two years to realizise that this suit was in extreamly poor taste-- however as soon as the matter got some coverage by the media they decide to have the matter dropped --note the power of the press--- but this matter still hung over some poor souls head for two yeare---shame--shame on you loblaws
