4:35 P.M. Loblaws’ , Sobey’s , et al’s price-fixing may have cost you at least 400 bucks a year !!! …

As Maclean’s noted last month , from 2001 to 2015 the consumer price index for bread rose dramatically more than did the average for all food prices. In addition to tracking bread for the key inflation measure , Statistics Canada also reports the monthly average price for a loaf of bread. The loaf that cost you $1.42 in July 2001 , was a $3.04 in March 2015 … More than double the ( ahem ) dough …

Kevin Grier , a food market analyst based in Ontario , measured what bread should have cost if it rose in tandem with overall food price inflation. By 2015, there’s a $1 gap between the real price and Grier’s price. If a family buys one bagged bread per week for a year , that’s a $52 difference … A lot when compared to the $25 gift cards Loblaws has offered as their mea-culpa for 14 years of fixing prices …

The average price gap from 2002 to 2014 was 55 cents , Grier says … Or that one loaf per week over that period may have plumped up a grocery bill by $371.80 …

That ain’t just breadcrumbs !!! …

4:02 P.M. PolitiFact ; … ‘ almost unbiased ‘ !!! …

 

 

 

 

 

For decades , Canada has protected its dairy industry , erecting trade barriers that diminish foreign competition and result in higher prices for Canadian consumers. While this has prompted longstanding complaints by the United States and other exporters , the tariffs have survived , thanks in part to a strong dairy lobby that Canadian politicians have been loath to oppose …

After a small fixed quota of U.S. exports is reached , Canada imposes a tariff on any dairy products brought into the country , with the level varying a bit depending on the specific product …

For instance , fluid milk is 241 percent, cheese is 245.5 percent , ice cream is 277 percent, cream is 292.5 percent … And butter is 298.5 percent !!! …

Experts said Trump’s tweet is a reasonable mid-range estimate and given the scale of these tariffs ;

‘ Trump’s complaints have some basis in fact ‘ …

MORBNOTE ; Now here’s where this ‘ Politifact ‘ people should basically state that Trump’s statement is 100 % CORRECT  … But like so many in the media and left leaning status quo morons , they continue on attempting to claw back some of the validity of what the Donald is saying !!! … Read on …

So said Munroe Eagles , director of Canadian studies at the State University of New York-Buffalo. Not that this is news, said Dan Trefler , a professor at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management …

‘ Has the tariff risen over time or otherwise become more restrictive over the last few decades ? … No ‘ Trefler said …Reasons the United States’ angst may be overstated … First , not all the news has been grim for the United States on the Canadian dairy front.In recent years , United States dairy producers have used technological advances to exploit a lucrative loophole in Canadian trade law. They have begun separating milk into its component parts , creating what’s called “ultrafiltered milk.” These are high in protein and are easier to use for making cheese and yogurt. Since this product didn’t exist when the most recent negotiations were completed , it falls outside the list of products with high tariffs. So in recent years , U.S. producers have sold a substantial amount of ultrafiltered milk to Canada, duty free.Canada ranks as the second-biggest market for U.S. dairy exports after Mexico.Between 2013 and 2016 , United States exports of “milk protein substances” to Canada grew from $78 million in Canadian dollars to $129 million. The United States accounted for two-thirds of all of Canada’s imports of this type.Thanks to these exports, the United States has actually posted a large trade surplus with Canada in dairy products in recent years. In 2016, the United States exported $631.6 million in dairy products to Canada, compared to just $113 million in Canadian dairy exports to the United States ( these figures are in U.S. dollars ) …

Part of the reason for low levels of Canadian dairy exports is that the World Trade Organization ruled that Canada is effectively subsidizing its dairy producers , making exports harder. This trade surplus for the United States ” has certainly helped balance whatever pain Canada’s overall dairy exemptions may have caused,” Eagles said …

Despite the complaints, the United States has long accepted Canada’s high dairy tariffs as the price of wider access to the Canadian market. The U.S. has similarly protected certain goods that it produces for export …

” In the last multilateral negotiations , Canada agreed to set its tariffs on dairy and poultry at high , but agreed, levels , as did the U.S. on products such as peanuts , tobacco , and sugar,” said Michael Hart , a trade policy specialist at Carleton University in Canada … “As good as these agreements are , the level of protection on some agriculture products remains obscene , but legal …

If Trump wants to lower them , he needs to negotiate …” A recent change in Canadian policy … That said , Canadian dairy interests have fought back with a policy that promotes using domestic sources of milk for high-protein substances. In 2017, U.S. exports of milk protein substances to Canada fell by about half. The change of Canadian policy on ultrafiltered milk ” is a legitimate concern for U.S. dairy exporters,” said Monica de Bolle , a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

Ultimately , neither side has entirely clean hands on this issue” Given the domestic political concerns and the power of agricultural lobbies in Canada and the U.S., there’s no such thing as pure-as-snow free trade in agriculture,” said Ross Burkhart , a political scientist specializing in U.S.-Canada relations at Boise State University … ” Each country can point to the other’s protection if they wish …

MORBNOTE ; Here’s Politifacts’ rulings ;

Trump tweeted , ” Canada charges the U.S. a 270% tariff on Dairy Products ! They didn’t tell you that, did they ? Not fair to our farmers !” … That number is a reasonable estimate of Canada’s dairy tariffs , which are high by any standard. That said , the United States has recently run a sizable trade surplus with Canada in dairy products , driven by a strong business in a milk product that was unaffected by the high tariffs. Trump also glosses over the fact that the United States imposes its own trade barriers on certain American-made products. The statement is basically accurate but needs clarification , so we rate it Mostly True.

MORBNOTE CONCLUSION ; The article proved Trump’s statement 100 % accurate … NOT ‘ a reasonable estimate … BUT … ‘ BULLSHIT … Their own investigation found the accurate numbers by the third paragraph !!! … But as usual they babble on about ANY POSSIBLE TAKE OR ANGLE they could scrape up to cloud the statement as much as they could !!! …

Like it has been suggested by some … And even Trump himself has said it on at least one occasion .. Trump could find the cure for cancer and the left would shit on him saying he’s helping out his ‘ BIG BUSINESS ‘ buddies in the medical corporations !!! …

5:41 P.M. After ‘fuck Trump’ barb , De Niro apologizes …

The headline is misleading … Old Bobber  didn’t apologize for his language or statement …

He ‘ apologized ‘ for what HE thinks the American people consider President Trumps recent actions and statement infer … Obviously thinking so highly of himself that he is entitled to do so !!! … Well he’s NOT !!! …

DeNiro is just another ‘ lucky schmo that got roles in over bloated excess Hollyweird ‘ for enough years that he has the money to shelter himself … To the best one can ( as a shitload of major warheads hittin’ Hollywood doesn’t give a fuck who’s in the house at the mansion !!! ) because , unlike the vast majority of people … Who have THEIR opinions too ( But don’t have the ‘ platform ‘ to scream at the world via the main stream media !!! ) … He can hide behind his averace , thanks to the money he has banked …

These Holliwarped assholes are really starting to irritate my rectum !!! … I’m tired of hearing from them … Here’s Bobert …Who is actually promoting something that adds greatly to his declining coffers , STILL taking time to whine about the candidate that he helped try to PAY to get into the Oval Office ( BUT LOST !!!! ) and spewing derrogative remarks about ‘ his ‘ and everyone else’s President !!! ……

De Niro , a staunch Trump opponent , had a bigger stage to lash out at … Sunday night’s Tony Awards in New York City …

De Niro dropped a couple of F-bombs before raising his arms and encouraging the crowd to vote in the upcoming midterm elections …

‘ First , I wanna say , ‘ fuck Trump ‘… De Niro said … ‘ It’s no longer ‘ Down with Trump’ it’s ‘ fuck Trump ‘…

MORBNOTE ; Does that not PERFECTLY encapsulate the mentality and level of intellect of some asshole from New York that stumbles into money and ends up in California ?!!! … I mean REALLY !!! … Such oratory prowess and thought provoking vocabulary !!! … 

The CBS television audience heard dead silence instead of De Niro’s comments, The Associated Press reported.De Niro, in an interview with CBC Toronto following the news conference, said he doesn’t see himself as a political person, but he is angry and frustrated with Trump’s behaviour. 

“I have no choice but to speak out,” he said, before admitting his comments just add to the recent war of words.Still, De Niro says he hopes more people will speak out against Trump.”This guy just is a jerk,” De Niro said.

MORBNOTE ; Ah .. Bob … WHO GIVES A FUCK WHAT YOU THINK !!! … You’re an overpaid Hollywood has been !!! …

3:07 P.M. Filthie’s Thunderbox Take on last night’s election results …

Ontario just had their provincial elections – and gave a well deserved punt to this demonic old dyke , Kathleen Wynne …

KatyLose

Like the vast majority of liberal leaders , she was incompetent and corrupt in addition to being a sexual degenerate …They’re all a-flutter now because they have a new conservative party in majority , and think that things will be hunky-dory now …

My thinking on that province is this :

If you were dumb enough to put a person in charge like Kathleen Wynne … what makes you think you are smart enough to vote your way out of the problems she created ?… That YOU had her create ?…

Bah – politics , hork , spit !… It’s Friday, and another shitty old liberal woman has been kicked to the curb !… Call it good … And bring on the weekend !…

1:39 P.M. At long last , Ovechkin and Capitals are Stanley Cup Champions …

‘ We did it ‘… said Ovechkin , whose 15 playoff goals set a franchise record …

‘ That’s all that matters … Look at the smiles on my teammates … This is something you’ll never forget … This moment … I’ll remember for the rest of my life … I’m so happy … It’s unbelievable ‘…

Vegas’ incredible expansion season finally ended , and so did the Capitals’ wait for a title since their debut in 1974 … But after so many years of crushing disappointment for a team with a lengthy history of postseason failure , these Caps confidently won their fourth consecutive closeout game with a tenacious third-period comeback in Vegas …

Like I said last week … I started to lean toward Washington for the Cup .. Mostly for Ovie … But they all worked their collective asses off and won four straight … They were the clock striking midnight for Las Vegas … 

Ovie worked more than I’ve ever seen him and he wore his emotions on his sleeve … I’m happy for him …

And let’s not forget about Holtby !!! …

It took forty odd years … But well done …
