The price of a piece of fruit has the locals spitting seeds again. Though I would not recommend trying to spit a mango seed.
Highlighted below is from someone’s facebook, there are 13 comments to date all condemning the prices of foods, especially the nutritious foods. One person commented that a mango in Ottawa would set you back a dollar to a dollar and a half.
was going to buy a mango at the store earlier, but I refused to pay $8.49 for it, crazy .....
$8.49 for a mango is along way from $55 for a water melon, and the circumstances are different too, but it does highlight what is wrong with the system we have up here, as I have pointed out frequently there is something rotten in the system and it needs weeding out.
Trouble is no one will address the issue, I am still waiting fro a response from our MHA and the minister for Labrador affairs [sent last November] on my request for information on what the government is doing as far as openness and accountability pertaining to the food mail subsidies.
A cynical person could be excused for thinking there is some sort of protection racket going on.
