There’s a joke going around among Canadians on Facebook about asking the bank for a loan to buy a cauliflower.
This is why.
The Canadian dollar is worth 70 U.S. cents this week. So the price for a regular cauliflower would be $4.90 US. All the more reason to buy locally at a Farmer’s Market! On the bright side, the price of gas for the car, and heating fuel, is about 70% of what it was during the summer.
People who live in Canada’s north, where food must be flown in, face much higher prices.
