Cookie giant gets Ontario subsidy

The Ontario government is giving Mondelez Canada bakery in East York up to $22.6 million for a plant expansion.
The company makes cookies and snack foods, including Oreos and Peek Freans.
Mondelez is an American company that employs about 107,000 people around the world.
The day before Ontario announced its subsidy, Mondelez held an official opening for its $90-million plant in Bahrain in the Middle East.
It's an outrageous waste of taxpayers' money to subsidize Mondelez.
