Couldnt read the article cause I'm too cheap to pay, but get the idea. Should be good for Canada as a food exporter short term just like it is for the toilet paper companies. Long term do those countries go through a period of lower purchases while using up stocks, or do they spoil and just get removed from the equation forever?

I know there will be people giving their children toilet paper as house warming gifts as they move out for years to come! Reply With Quote
Mar 24, 2020 | 19:49 3 Fantastic. Might be shaping up to be a good year for North American food producers. Well those that survive the virus and bankruptcy at least. Sucks to be the 3rd world - virus doesn't get them, the food riots will. Reply With Quote
Mar 24, 2020 | 21:51 4 About a week after the crop insurance deadline for seeding, the board will come back to life. Garnishing our wages for the greater good. It won't be just wheat and malt, it'll be everything, maybe even beef and pork. Don't be naive enough to think they won't try it at the least and more likely ram it down our throats. It's a risk.

    I suspect that just in time delivery is getting a rethink, and it will take years to forget, I doubt the stocks will get used up as soon as the scare is over, at least at the federal and commercial level. They have seen the financial risks to their supply chains( and their electability/ chances for overthrow), and will adjust accordingly. Likely that most consumers won't be able to afford to keep their hoards of toilet paper, and pay all the other bills, so may use up the reserves to free up grocery money to pay other bills.

    Mar 24, 2020 | 22:54 7 Just wondering, maybe it’s because of the viral seclusion, but do any of you remember the October Crisis during Pierre Elliot’s reign? I remember it like yesterday. The eerie feeling of pulling up to the residence at the U of S and being followed in by the cops, making sure we got in before curfew at 7 PM. And all we wanted to do was get to the party. Funny thing, another Trudeau, another crisis. Just saying. Reply With Quote
