See this picture? This comes from a town in Canada where a 24 pack of water bottles is 104 dollars and formula milk for a baby is priced at 55 dollars a pack. What’s more, a pack of diapers is 95 dollars and one head of lettuce is 26 dollars. Inuit people are starving in a country known for it’s generosity.
If you don’t believe this is true, you can find more images like this here. This is the only grocery store these people have in their small towns, and many people are going hungry & elderly are dying faster.
You’ll send aid to foreign children that are starving, so why won’t you pay a little extra to feed the people in your own country who work hard & still can’t afford the prices for healthy food for their families?
Please have a heart and reblog this photo to raise awareness that even in our own countries people are starving, join the movement and show the government that we won’t sit by and watch people starve.
If you think this will make your blog ugly you’re wrong. Children in a first world country are getting sick & starving, and nobody is even aware it’s happening. You can let people know by reblogging and showing you care. People I am close to, my friends and future in-laws are going through this.
Love how little attention this post gets from my beach blog followers.
I’d like everyone to know that as a Canadian, yes this is sad but it’s not all of Canada’s fault. It’s that provinces government. For me, living in new Brunswick is cheaper than living in the western provinces, but we lack jobs here.
It’s heart breaking that the north is going through this and I don’t know why but I don’t want people to think that Canada is a horrible place. But it’s not. I’m proudly canadian but just like America or anywhere else, there are negatives in EVERY country.
Do you live in a community that fights daily against food insecurity and starvation? Is the cost of food exorbitantly higher where you live? The fact that you wrote, “I don’t want people to think that Canada is a horrible place” shows me how much you value the lived experiences of people living in the North. Do you honestly think that they share your opinions? Do you think that this is the appropriate forum for you, who does not fully understand the situation and is offering no solutions or support, to discuss your Canadian pride? This really is not about you, at all.
Just jalwhite kicking ass and taking names, like always.
