NewsFOOD COSTS THROUGH THE ROOF SHARE ON: Tim Rout, staff Tuesday, Sep. 13th, 2016A new report from Food Secure Canada is outlining the incredibly high food prices in communities along the James Bay coast. The study shows the cost of groceries for a family in Attawapiskat is just over 19-hundred dollars a month. That’s compared to nearly 850-dollars in Toronto. Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus says food prices are high in the area but it’s the fly-in communities that are suffering. Angus says the Nutrition North program was meant to help these communities, but the lack of transparency means there’s no way to know if subsidies are passed onto the consumers or not.
