A friend shared the qoute below and then commented that they didn’t feel that right now that Canadian’s would feel the same way at all..
I totally agree, I think right now at this point that anything like this would indeed create massive ripples and blowback on all levels of goverment..
So here is my real question for you.. do you think its coming or do you think its already here?
“The most important factor that actually changed the way Canadians shopped for, cooked, and ate food on the home front was the introduction of a universal price freeze starting in December 1941 followed by the introduction of coupon rationing of sugar in July 1942, tea and coffee in August, butter in December, and meat in March of the following year. These controls on food consumption came shortly on the heels of months of periodic food shortages and a precipitous spike in food prices. Price and rent controls, it was argued, would help to ensure that Canadians could continue to afford necessities like food, fuel, and shelter while rationing promised all Canadians a fair share of scarce necessities. The penalties for breaking the rules ranged from small fines to imprisonment, but both controls – and rationing, in particular – maintained strong popular support throughout the war. In separate polls done in March and July 1945 more than 90 percent Canadians agreed that rationing had done a good or fair job in achieving equitable distribution.11 As one postwar analyst summed up Canadians’ attitudes, “rationing has consistently given evidence of being the most popular among Canada’s wartime controls, a fact that is especially significant when one remembers that it has been more a part and parcel of every day living than any of the other controls have been.”
My personal view.. Its already here, in so many ways..
However I am not going to explain why I feel that way in this post, I really do not want to sway the readers view point, I would truly like to hear your thoughts on this? I will do a part two, where I will share my personal thoughts, along with clips from the response’s from this post (without names etc)
