Provence produces some very nice cheeses at a low price.

Of course this poster is either mad or a troll. I think the former.

Could a passing mod rid me of this annoying priest?

I love milk too and cheese but recently found out my scurvy like symptoms are lactose intolerance so the price of cow juice means nothing to me.
As for AB i can comment that the trucking side for the time being will weather the drop in oil, as the oil industry slows you forget ICE ROAD season is beginning and all these surplus trucks is making my job a lot easier recruiting for said season ! This season lasts till end of March and if its still slow then most will take well earned vacation.
I will enquire how many tanker loads of Milk go up to all the diamond mines along side the convoys of fuel

(sarcasm)

Perhaps you're right about the amusement value of this madman. Do you think if you could buy milk in the Beer Store he'd think better of Canada?

Try Wheatabix and Marmite My reference to cornflakes meant breakfast cereals etc We-UK just pick up wine/beer along with all other grocery-one check out and done.
Nova Scotia oh no, you cannot even buy a tonic water in a liquor store to go with gin-barmy.
1500 people employed in non jobs to sell booze and nothing else, Sobeys/Walmart/Costco etc just another item they could sell at little extra cost. Grow up and get real in Canada PLEASE you CANNOT buy alcohol here without ID Another excuse used to stop Supermarkets selling in Canada, the rest of the modern world copes

And...We're in business!

Why are the 1500 people employed to sell booze in non-jobs? I would imagine they would disagree.

I think we should start a new thread to discuss all this in more depth . Shall we call it "Milk Cheese & All Things Eggman" ?

I'm glad I live in Canada 'cos I can buy a gun over the counter (why don't gun shops sell booze)?
