Cheese. My life force. After the love for my family and my animals is probably my love for cheese. But it is darn expensive! For any Canadian, take a trip down to the USA and you’ll see prices that are usually between 1/4 – 1/2 what we pay. It’s so expensive that when Bonnie and I moved out of our parents’ homes, it took me 3 promotions before I considered myself able to purchase it on a regular basis! This is all thanks to the supply management system brought in during the ’70’s (and controlled by the Canadian Dairy Commission) to counteract surplus milk production and ensure fair returns for farmers. Very noble cause but it sure hits the wallet for (large) consumers like me!
