Could Food Shortages Come To Canada In 2011?

While we all watch the civil unrest in Egypt, Tunisia, Lebanon, and Yemen unfold. The one thing that is connected in all of these countries is the fact that all of them faced food shortages, and sky rocketing food prices.

Can that happen in Canada in 2011?
Yes it can! We are are already being warned that food prices will sharply rise this year, due to gas and energy prices rising. Which has already caused the inflation rate to hit 2.4% in December 2010.

Recently in Berlin Germany Agriculture ministers from Europe, Africa and Canada met and warned of the dangers of inflation and food shortages.

"Aziz Akhenouch ( Moroccan) denounced the "rocketing prices" which threaten purchasing power as well as political stability in his country, which is a major wheat importer and saw prices double last year."

In that week long meeting, the only options tabled as a solution, was more GM crops and more trade agreements. And we have all seen how well both of those work out!

Add the fact that Canadian production is now lagging behind the Americans (among many other countries), source and this looks like it could become a real problem very soon.

The Canadian government seems to be doing very little to prevent this from happening, and personally I will not wait for them to come up with a solution. Even if they do, it will not have our best interests in mind!

We need to band together in our communities, and create our own protection barrier against a food shortage. Building community Gardens, and networking are going to be vital! Our government and the international community can try to scare people into whatever regulations they want. But if we have networks of communities that can sustain themselves, none of it will work! And the people will get by just fine.

    Today's world is facing the dilemma of food shortage. Population growth, alternate use of edibles, the skirmishes between the food program workers and the hungry warring factions, climate changes due to pollution, shortage of supply and above all the energy crises are the issues that are not only difficult to solve but also reversely affect each other. If one issue is resolved the other is catalyzed by this redemption. If we try control the pollution by using the corn and other edibles the ozone layer is saved but the humanity is harmed due to shortage of food.

    My thoughts are that we each need an edge in the fight for food, BEFORE it becomes a fight at the stores. Stock up and learn to store dry goods. Flour, sugar, milk powder, coffee, tea, whatever your family needs. Get it now before the prices go higher. Short on storage room? Get creative. I know of someone that stores dry pasta in large pop bottles, in a suitcase under their bed! Stock up, keep a record when you bought your goods, learn to rotate and re-stock. Learn to make what you can, grow what you can and learn as much as you can to NOT rely on the government.
    NO government will save our butts in times of crisis.
