The language on the loblawcard.ca website makes me sick:

Loblaw discovered that Canadians were overcharged for the cost of some packaged bread products in our stores and other grocery stores across Canada. In response, we’re offering eligible customers a $25 Loblaw Card, which can be used to purchase items sold in our grocery stores across Canada.

How about:

Loblaw discovered thatdeliberately and knowingly stole bread from Canadians were overcharged for the cost of some packaged bread products in our stores and other grocery stores across Canadafor fourteen years. In response, and without accepting culpability on our part, we’re offering eligible customers a $25 Loblaw Card, which can be used to purchasewill only cost us $10-20 wholesale on items sold in our grocery stores across Canada. You might have to sign away your right to participate in a class-action suit by accepting the card, though.

Update, Jan 2018: terms and conditions are now posted (archive link). You won’t exactly have to sign away your class action rights, but “Information pertaining to your activation and use of the Loblaw Card may be shared between and amongst Loblaw, the Program Administrator [JND Legal Administration], Blackhawk [Blackhawk Network (Canada) Ltd.] and/or Peoples [Peoples
Trust Company] and with the courts in any class actions relating to an overcharge on the price of packaged bread.” So it looks like your class action rights are affected if you apply for and activate a card.
