  1. Support your local farmers always.

  2. Just a heads up that grocery prices will continue to escalate.

  3. The restaurants will be going out of business and this will level the scales for what society is consuming. I doubt local restaurants will weather a second wave

  4. Support your local farmers!

  5. The comment that only food prices have gone up is untrue. In Alberta it is $1.05 for Regular where I am and oil is about $42 a barrel for WTI; That is around what the price was when oil was much higher several years ago. When the currency is inflated by ongoing “stimulus” it is unavoidable that the value of the dollar erodes and both savings and purchasing power are eroded. Economic policy can take a year to have its full effect. Let’s talk about prices in, say, 9 months.

  6. Second wave? Who else is fed up with “Cases” that go home and watch hockey? Age/hospitalization/death comparisons. THEY ARE FEAR MONGERING

  7. In the spring the liberals were also encouraging protestors to block rail roads right before the pandemic hit and that probably didn’t help the supply line much either

  8. More fear mongering, here we go again,

      This will be real this time. Famine by January. Read page 10 of the WHO GPMB document “a world at risk “ the deaths will be real too. The simulation ends at the end of this month .

  9. Fear mongering

    Watch food chain reaction simulation done back in 2015. This is going to be flat out famine by January.

  14. Groceries in Massachusetts have gone up quite a bit.

  15. There is no second wave. There is no ‘deadly’ pandemic. Can the lies already.

  16. Who cares.

    Nun besides your ratings dropping including the economy

  20. He states that nothing but food is going up, Give me a break. The Governments all indicated that they would stop price gouging when this began, has anybody noticed the price of Lumber, Building materials, and so many other things that have all gone up over 100%.
