CdnFox Posted February 26 Report Share Posted February 26 https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/government-food-prices-lower-1.6759117 Here's a few points - first off despite the headline the purpose of this article is to basically say the gov't can't do anything so it's not trudeau's fault. Thanks CBC! But - the one thing they won't mention anywhere in there as part of the reason OR part of the solution? Carbon tax. The farmers are paying carbon tax to grow the food, then more to harvest the food, then the suppliers pay carbon tax to ship the food to their processing plants, and more carbon tax to process the food to a useable state. Then more carbon tax to ship it to the grocery store and carbon tax to keep it cool until you buy it. That's before the carbon tax you pay in your car to go buy it and pick it up. There is a HUGE carbon tax cost in food production and carbon taxes have been going up and continue to do so. But - the cbc didn't mention it even once. Despite the fact it's one thing the gov't could change tomorrow for those industries and would have an immediate noticeable impact.
