    Canadians (in general) were sheep when I left there almost 30 years ago and since then they've had their teeth pulled. They can't see that they're becoming China...living on jobs created by booming exports fueled by a low valued dollar, food is becoming a major family budget concern for the majority.

    FYI; That cauliflower comes to $5.59 US...imagine how your priorities would change if you were paying that here...and still paying $3+/gallon (converted to US). In addition a 30 year fixed rate mortgage is almost unheard of. There, the usual is either 5 yr fixed rate amortized over 30 years, or an x% over prime "floating" rate...so if interest rates go up they all take it in the shorts.

    $30 for a gallon of chocolate milk is crazay.
    Not that chocolate milk is inelastic, (for some, lol) but being socialist, they'll tax the bejesus out of inelastic goods, such as gasoline, booze, cigarettes etc.
    If I remember correctly around 25 years ago cigarettes were $10 a pack.
    anyway, I'm cooking up a 15lb turkey I got around thanksgiving right now.. cost about $5.50.. for the whole thing.. JennyO brand

    The story is highly exaggerated, all the prices they are quoting are in Nunavut. It's a lot like comparing the produce prices in the bubblegum end of some Alaska village with what you pay at a Portland Safeway.
    Prices are up for some imported foods due to the exchange rate but the beef prices are still better than Oregon.

    Oh you. You know it's solely due to them having to double-print everything in French and English. Give 'em a hogshead and they'll take a metric thingy

    I was under the impression the entire nation of Canada was like a village in Alaska

    Canadians would not know what socialism is if it sat on their face. We are a country ruled by finance capital just like the Americans.

    The main problem I've found with Canada is there are too few Canadians. :eek:
    Too many people there seem to identify with somewhere else.:confused::confused:
