A 20-year pin in inflation may set the bite on the Trudeau Liberals

Key takeaways: 

  • While the specialists state it’s not Ottawa’s mistake, it’s still the government’s issue.
  • Maybe there will be a bite on Trudeau’s Liberals. 

Spike in inflation might cause a bite on Trudeau’s Liberals: 

Heath Krevesky is a confessed political enthusiast — and a part of a nerd.

That’s his method of describing why he’s been following his weekly grocery bill for ages now. And why he’s bothered that inflation is becoming a larger and larger bite out of his food funds.

“In 2019, it cost me $9,826 to feed myself. In 2020, that cost of feeding myself went to $11,994, an increase of 22 per cent,” he explained. Source – cbc.ca

“I can’t wait to find out how this year wraps itself out. It appears as though it’s going to be close to $14,000 for a single individual to feed themselves.” Source – cbc.ca

Food costs. Gasoline. A meal out. The price of various daily things is moving up after inflation went 4.7 per cent last month — the biggest percentage in almost twenty years.

For Krevesky, costlier expenses mean peeling back the menu and changing his tastes.

The citizen of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island stated he purchases more limited meat these days, and when he does, he tends to beef ribs rather than steak.

“It’s sort of like your poor man’s choice of beef if you will,” he stated during an interview for a special section on inflation airing. Source – cbc.ca

“Everybody would like to be able to manage a prime rib, you know, on a semi-regular basis, I cannot bear that … Ideally, I like to eat a little bit of beef or chicken, fish, throughout the week, so I get a steady diet, but it’s becoming more and more expensive.” Source – cbc.ca
