With all that land you could buy your own cow lol.

You see - with age comes wisdom. You are obviously very wise! If only the Eggman has seen things in the same way. It could all have been very different for him.

I guess now we'll never know.
RIP Eggman.....

No, I know - and I really hope he has a thick enough skin to continue to keep us all entertained. He reminds me very much of my father in law.....

Care to comment Graham? Perhaps not.
Yes I will. Milk like cheese etc is a protected product in Canada unlike the rest of the modern world. The Dairy industry has no competition in Canada so charge what they like, you just suck and pay like mugs no questions asked.
Beer etc, you cannot buy in a supermarket, barmy-get real please so out of date with life.

If life really revolves around the price of cheese and milk for you, and we are out of touch because our lives don't revolve around the same, then......hmmm, bit stumped how to respond really. I'm not sure the price of cheese is really up there for me. You see, I can afford it - bit embarrased at my riches I suppose.

More nonsense. Primary industries are less than 10% of Canada's GDP.

Do you know what, I'm starting to wonder if the Eggman is simply a Troll. If you are Eggman, I take my hat off to you. You have been excellent value for money. Why you don't post on other threads - who knows. You lurk around in the early hours, picking you moment.....

If your just a nutter in some bedroom in the UK who waits until 1am in the morning to bang on about a milk conspiracy, then find a hobby (another hobby).

But please don't leave us. What other Canadian conspiracies/time bombs/cheese related issues are out there?

That is all well and good for you one percenters but I drink black coffee and haven't had a bowl of cornflakes for years. This is the reality of life in Canada for us ordinary folks. We have a duty to make sure all potential immigrants are disabused of the idea that Canada is a land of milk and ... er ... milk. I, for one, take this duty seriously.

(OK, I have always taken my coffee black and haven't touched cornflakes since I left home at 18 but hat is beside the point. I'm not going to start now. No siree!)
