Yeah, that one where the porn actor mutlilated his friend, chopped up his body and shipped the peices all over was Aaaaa-DORABLE!.

Personally, I don't give edam, but It's not a gouda thing for the force. The officers involved will have a hard time trying to chedder bad reputation after this or they'll be treated like muensters. They might even be put into parm's way.

I might even consider moving there... after the poles shift and / or Global WarmingTM makes it so it's not so damn cold most of the year.

If you have things like "cheese-smuggling rings" I think you've got a problem with the laws, not border security.
 
2012-09-25 01:22:28 PM
I'm not clicking a Fox News North link, but I'm assuming it was Niagara Regional Police. Link

This is the same police force that is also under investigation for smuggling steroids. Link

big pig peaches: Why is the cheese so expensive in Canada?


A highly protected dairy industry. So any imports have huge tariffs and we pay $50 / kg or more for really good cheese

Not sure of other provinces but Quebec and Ontario have self-regulating dairy industries being milk marketing boards . both control all the sale of milk and milk products in their provinces -They have been called " The Milk Mob " since they have been compared to organized crime. Some decades long battles they have fought include the sale of yellow margarine, or margarine of any form and the sale of soy milk / products

I might take up moo nlighting myself.

Need_MindBleach: If you have things like "cheese-smuggling rings" I think you've got a problem with the laws, not border security.


Yep. It's do to the regs on dairy farms in Canada.

So what's the story with Canadian grocery prices?

It begins with supply management.

The system is a hidden, ubiquitous part of everyday life -- one many Canadians aren't even aware of.

It affects the market for Canadian milk, cheese, yogurt, chicken and eggs -- which can be vastly more expensive here than in the United States, with the gap widening, according to the OECD.

It is a staple of the rural economy. And it's now the subject of an increasingly heated debate, amid international free-trade talks and growing doubt about its long-term future.

The decades-old system was designed to protect Canadian farmers from volatile market fluctuations with made-in-Canada minimum prices. It also imposes tariff controls on foreign competition and sets quotas for domestic producers.

Critics say it artificially drives up prices at the cash register and limits innovation. Farmers, meanwhile, argue that it preserves their way of life and cross-border price comparisons only tell part of the story.


Well, as long as it's "preserving their way of life", I have no problem paying 10 bucks for a brick of Black Diamond or Cracker Barrel.

Is the technology behind making cheese out of reach for Canada?
 
2012-09-25 01:35:29 PM
Who moved my cheese?
 
2012-09-25 01:36:40 PM
it isn't the technology. it's the fact that they don't have cows up there, and they have to milk female polar bears for the cheese curds in poutine.

There are many fine things in Canada. Cheese is not one of them. The pitiful Canadian cheese industry has managed to make importing it difficult. If I fly back to the USA from France, land of excellent cheese, and pass through Toronto as I usually do, I can't even bring it through on my way home to California. Quel dommage.  .

There's a difference between industry regulations and the industry itself. There are tons of amazing local cheese producers in Quebec and Ontario.

Well thanks for the tip....we are indeed going to pass through Toronto in a month, and I'll try to check out your recommendation. I do live partly in France, and perhaps have become a cheese snob.

Check out the St. Lawrance Market. They should have some really good stuff there.

From what I hear they are on par with the Canadian Wheat Board of the prairies. I know there was a big stink about obliterating the CWB a little while ago, but most farmers I know would love to see it and the ridiculous bureaucracy it created disappear.

Our milk farmers and their protectionism on domestic product.

From border town cheese can be as much as 5 times as expensive yes 5 times.

The law to preserve prices is a joke as mentioned above

these mega companies have assimilated all the small producers so now this older law is protecting companies that exploit it... great law when introduced now it's a way to squeeze money out of consumers
