Heating costs would be ridiculous and what if you lost power.


You think a 100 years ago anyone would have eaten lettuce, avocado's or chicken?

russia has far more remote places with far cheaper and better produce, to give yiu some perspective. this is not about it being buttfuck nowhere, its about it being canada - the land where government has no idea how to support communities. go to a tiny town in florida and ull see houses and 4 lane highways. go to vancouver downtoen and ull see 2 lanes hal of which are closed for bike lane construction :-p

From another article from CBC:

Quote:
My husband and I both work full time, and barely cover the cost of living here with one child. Daycare Food Rent and Utilities are outrageous. We do consider moving south (Alberta or Ontario) however we want our Daughter raised around our elders as we don't think it is fair to take her from her culture. Canadians shouldn't be making comments about moving our families south, we were forced from our families during the residential school times and I for one don't want to go back to that.

Also for us to move south right now, we would probably need at least 6 months to save up enough to move just the three of us, meaning selling all our furniture, vehicle, and our family dog. We would be able to take 2 suitcases each.
I also read that in order for them to go "live" off the land and hunt, they'd have to pay for snowmobiles, tools, gas, ammunition, etc. and all that costs more than actually buying food staples too. Plus they might already be on income support or they'd have to miss a days work to go hunt.

You can't have it both ways...

You can't live in the middle of nowhere and expect metropolitan prices or selection.
drunkrussian, It's not the Government's job to support them with subsidized produce.

If you want a certain culture, you're welcome to that lifestyle as well.
Nobody is forcing them to buy "snowmobiles, tools, gas, ammunition, etc."...
If you want to live off the land, then do so.


Do I sound a bit dickish?

Because it isn't actually costing them that much to get it there. Sell one bottle of water and their rent is probably paid. Yes it costs a lot to get it there, but not that much. Its gouging and price fixing, that I can guarantee is the real problem.

I can't really feel bad for anyone who chooses to live in a particular lifestyle, but can't afford to sustain it.

2damaxmr2 failed me, because he doesn't understand the meaning of the word "much."

Canada takes Arctic sovereignty very seriously, and for good reason. The Canadian Arctic is one of the richest reserves of natural resources globally, and having a permanent population base in the region is an essential component to preventing one of the many nations who believe they can lay rightful claim to those resources from infringing on our sovereignty. Not only do the Inuit residents of the Arctic act as a Northern defense force patrolling the region, but in UN disputes the population base of Canadian citizens is taken into significant consideration. The subsidization of food delivery is a small price for the massive benefits we receive, an equivalent Canadian Forces presence would cost many times more. Canadian's also fail to realize, the federal government invests in transportation networks throughout the southern parts of the country to ensure efficient travel and transport can take place. Every Canadian receives similar benefits to what people in the Arctic do, it's just done in a different way, and I'd be willing to bet if someone actually broke down the per capita costs and compared them the difference wouldn't be as crazy as people think.

Also, people aren't as much upset about food costs as whole, as they are price gouging, which the limited options of places to shop facilitates. That seems to be a fact people are missing...
