As the vaccination passport mandate sets in, Canada especially will face significant food shortages, which will cause prices to rise exponentially. It has already begun in Calgary. Shelves are beginning to look bare.
The US will suffer from car parts shortages.
The produce warehouse in Northeast Calgary routinely received two or three trucks a day to restock their shelves. Now, when they are attempting to import 80 to 90 per cent of their stock from the U.S., they are lucky to get one truck every two or three days, the Calgary Herald reports.
They can’t get grapes, strawberries and citrus. Grapes that used to be $.99 a pound are now $4.99 a pound.
Ottawa and Eastern Ontario are facing the same shortages. A shortage of truckers and now mandatory vaccines to cross the border into Canada are adding to the spike in food costs.
“A lot of truckers have actually decided to retire, exit the industry,” says Sylvain Charlebois, Director, Agri-Food Analytics Lab at Dalhousie University. “So trucking things around, which is really an essential component of our supply chain in North America, has been severely handicapped over the last little while.”
There was a huge freedom rally in Calgary yesterday:
