Another increase in the price of milk went by without so much as a whimper from anyone.

i agree this has gotten out of hand why are cape bretoners being hit so hard it isn't just milk it is everything we pay more here for food and gas an doil then then do in ontario . ontario has the jobs and the money we have almost nothing here and they continue to keep on raising prices higher than hey should be by far this is ridiculous . our elected officials are doing nothing to help capers and i have a real problem with that start doing your jobs adn keep the promises you have made and let us start seeing some action here in lowering prices

The marketing boards have to go. Until that happens and farmers have the freedom of an open market you will continue to be ripped off. The quoto system is allowing this to happen. How much milk goes to the garbage when kid's have to do without?
1/2 a US Gal of milk in the US (that is always on sale) sells for as low as 78 cents.
Regular price is in the area of 2.25 a Gallon.
What does that tell you. Ask your elected MLA's and MP's whats up. They have the solution.

How about the cost of housing in Cape Breton, it sounds like like Calgary prices, why pay $750,000.00 for a house in Sydney? What's that--- you mean you can buy a house in Cape Breton for under $700,000.00--- must be nice eh?
