Access to Affordable, Healthy Food in Canada’s North Nears Crisis

from Here are grocery prices in some remote communities in Canada’s north: $10 for a carton of milk, $28 for a cabbage, $65 for a chicken. Leesee Papatsie, a resident of Iqaluit, the capital city of the vast northern territory of Nunavut, has seen it all — and documented some of the more budget-busting prices on a website. The 46-year-old Inuit mother of five, with two children still living at home, said that while prices fluctuate, she spends between CAD$500 and $600 (US$450 to $540) on groceries per week.
