Rising food prices: Canadians – regardless of income level – say it’s getting harder to feed their families

costs of food

April 4, 2016 – The rising cost of groceries has left the majority of Canadians finding it harder to afford to feed their households, and it’s not only the working poor who are feeling the squeeze.

A new poll from the Angus Reid Institute finds people in middle-class or higher income brackets also say putting food on the table has become more difficult in the last year, as do those who have kids at home.

Canadians report cutting back on meat and switching to cheaper brands at the grocery store to deal with rising costs, while the majority (two-in-three) say the country’s leaders aren’t paying enough attention to the issue.

NFU Calls for Immediate Action to Stop GM alfalfa seed sales in Canada


NFU Calls for Immediate Action to Stop GM alfalfa seed sales in Canada

(March 24, 2016) – The National Farmers Union (NFU) has written to Agriculture and Agri-Food MinisterLawrence MacAulay asking him to take immediate action to stop Monsanto licensee, Forage Genetics International, (FGI) from selling genetically modified (GM) alfalfa seed in Canada this spring. The NFU also asked the Minister to put border controls in place to prevent importation of contaminated conventional alfalfa seed from the USA.
“The NFU has seen a letter from FGI which says the company may start selling genetically modified alfalfa seed in Eastern Canada for spring planting,” said Jan Slomp, NFU President. “This would be a disaster for farmers because, once it has been planted, there would be no way to stop the GM trait from spreading to organic and conventional farms and crops. There are many domestic and export markets that completely reject alfalfa seeds, hay or pellets with any GM content. Clearly, the Minister needs to take action to protect the interests of Canadian farmers before it is too late.”
“Last week the Alberta Association of Municipal Districts and Counties passed a resolution to prevent the introduction of GM alfalfa into Alberta until there is market and consumer acceptance,” noted Peter Eggers, NFU Region 8 (Peace River and BC) Coordinator. “If GM alfalfa is sold in eastern Canada, it would only be a matter of time before it spreads into the West. FGI should not be allowed to sell a product that would cause so much harm to farmers all across Canada.”
“In light of the recent media report of an Alberta seed grower who suspects seed he purchased from the USA was contaminated with herbicide-tolerant GM varieties, we are also concerned about contamination from imported seed,” continued Eggers. “A 2015 USDA study shows that GM alfalfa genes have escaped and are being spread throughout the countryside by pollinators. American alfalfa seed production is therefore at high risk for contamination. We shouldn’t be allowing FGI’s product to enter by the back door either.”
“To protect our alfalfa sector, farmers should not purchase alfalfa seed from the USA,” said Slomp. “When buying from Canadian sources, seek out seed growers who have always used Canadian grown sources. It is legal for farmers to sell farm-saved seed from older varieties that are in the public domain. There are only two registered alfalfa varieties, AC Grazeland BR and Yellowhead, that are not in the public domain.”

The WAM Show Ep.4 – Kevin Proteau, Todd McDougall; Monsanto in 2016, International Martial Law

On this episode of The WAM Show, host Josh Sigurdson is joined by WAM’s John Doull, Kevin Proteau of Locals Supporting Locals  starting at the 16:30 mark of video and Todd McDougall of Winnipeg Alternative Media.

See the full episode here:

We start off the show talking about the new authorization put forward by Senator Mitch McConnell that essentially allows the U.S. to drop troops anywhere at any time without any declaration or allowance. This legislation technically declares international martial law which is something that’s been going on for a while, but never legally.
This is actually a rewrite of the constitution’s 1941 War Powers Act.
President Obama has not yet shown support for the legislation, however Obama’s been looking for a new AUMF to replace the 2001 9/11 AUMF which has a similar power, however, not as extensive.
We’ve been warning about international martial law for years, but called crazy. Now Senator Chris Murphy is speaking out against the idea, saying,
“It is essentially a declaration of international martial law, a sweeping transfer of military power to the president that will allow him or her to send U.S. troops almost anywhere in the world, for almost any reason, with absolutely no limitations.”

With this conversation, we also touch on the arming, funding and training of ISIS/ISIL insurgents by the CIA and the hypocrisy involved in this obvious script. That leads us to talking about the refugees in Europe and how it’s affecting culture all while political correctness stands in the way of speaking out against the reality of the problem. As women get mass raped in the streets by groups of migrant men and people get robbed and beaten, police are being restricted from acknowledging the identity of the suspects and the mayor is telling ten year old girls to not be so provocative if they don’t want to get raped. This is the height of politically correct insanity. A spade is a spade. We have Muslims writing in to WAM telling us how saddened they are by this crisis as it puts THEM in danger. They left their countries to escape this nonsense.
We are then joined in the second segment by Kevin Proteau of Locals Supporting Locals. Kevin started a calendar to help fund small but important initiatives. He speaks out against GMOs and Monsanto and stands up for farmers in and around Penticton, British, Columbia.
Kevin’s YouTube channel is filled with excellent information with real change-makers and talks about a whole array of subjects including stratospheric aerosol geoengineering, healthy living, government corruption and more!
We’re also joined in the second and third segment by Winnipeg Alternative Media co-founder Todd McDougall and hear about what’s happening at the original WAM as Winnipeg pushes to end water fluoridation as we attempted in 2013. This time, the game plan is stronger and the vision is ambitious but realistic as more and more people realize that hydrofluosilicic acid is toxic waste, the byproduct of aluminum and phosphate mining.
