Costs continue to soar
According to Stats Canada, the Canadian cost of living has dropped, but I wonder where those that compile these figures are living. The cost of utilities has risen and the government has given approval to an increase, gas at the pumps is now around $1.28/litre, the price of a small head of celery was $3.70 and lettuce was $2.48/head at the grocery store. Even a small box of Kraft Dinner now costs $2.19.
Everyone knows that figures can be manipulated, but how can anyone explain to me how our overall costs keep increasing but our cost of living is declining? This takes major manipulation and/or a brainwashed public. A little honesty would help.
