At last Northern Labrador has coped a big break: According to the new Nutrition North Program of the Federal Government we are now part of Northern Manitoba.
Works for me. Barrrh haaa haaaa.

All jokes aside [pity] the old food mail subsidy will be no more come March 31 2011.

It will be replaced with the new "Market Driven" Nutrition North Canada program.

Still lots of details to see but I like the increase in subsidies for perishables and milk products.

I am a little worried about the "Total amount each community ships" as a basis for level of subsidy.

But it looks like they will have to have proof of subsidy at point of sale, plus country food will be eligible and Canada Post has the heave ho, all goods components for sure. Also health Canada will play a role in overseeing the program, wait and see how that plays out.
