I had to go into town today to pick up our new truck, which was getting a rust prevention treatment. While there, I stopped at the grocer to get some things we cannot grow ourselves, like tea, and some day old bread for the livestock. I noticed the price of groceries. Unbelievable! Prices have skyrocketed over the last year alone. Some meat is triple the cost. Chocolate was 25% to 50% more expensive. Veggies are through the roof. One small chicken, 2 or 3 lbs, was “sale priced” at $18. We notice food prices so rarely because we grow and forage so much of our own food, but how on Earth do most families afford to eat anymore. Daphne and I calculated that, eating leanly and mostly buying on sale products, it must cost a typical Canadian family over $100 per week per family member to maintain a healthy diet. This is sham agriculture, people, and I know for a fact at least some of those prices are due to engineered shortages. And if people like the Nova Scotia Minister of Agriculture, Keith Colwell, have their way, it will become rapidly harder for families to get affordable food from local farms and market gardens. Colwell says it’s all about food safety. He is lying. it’s about lining pockets.
