2 TikTok Videos Are Calling Out The ‘Insanely Expensive’ Food Prices Across Canada

It's likely that at some point we've all experienced a case of sticker shock while out grocery shopping, but now a pair of TikTok videos are shedding some light on just how different food prices are across Canada.

Inuuk TikTokers @shinanova and @arcticmakeup, are using their platforms to point out some very startling differences in common grocery items throughout the country.

In her viral video, Shina Nova scrolled through the prices of common grocery items in Nunavik and Nunavut.

Things like a pack of strawberries are seen priced at $14.39, while a jar of peanut butter is $11.19. The most shocking, though, is a pack of grapes that is being sold for $28.19.

In her video, Ky Flaherty went beyond just the incredibly high food prices in Nunavut, to showcase the cost of some common household items.

In the video, a box of Kirkland brand diapers is seen in Nunavut for $53.79, when it typically costs around $37.00 in most parts of the country on Costco's website.

According to the most recent food price survey conducted by Statistics Canada in 2018, you can see a stark price difference between food products in Nunavut compared to Ottawa.

For example, a loaf of white bread cost $7.15 in Nunavut at the time and $4.62 in Ottawa.

At the time of the survey, a 1kg jar of peanut butter was priced at $9.87 in Nunavut compared to $2.99 in Ottawa.

Flaherty has posted several videos on her social media before, continuing to highlight the high food price disparity across Canada.

A Guinness World Record has just been bestowed upon a very, very tall Canadian teen, and he truly stands head and shoulders above most of us.

Hailing from Quebec, 15-year-old Olivier Rioux clocks in at a neck-ache-inducing 7 feet, 5.33 inches tall, which has earned him a place in the 2022 edition of the Guinness World Records as the world's tallest living male teenager. That makes him taller than any of the Toronto Raptors players.

"The Liberal Party of Canada, if reelected to form government, will make it a criminal offence to block access to buildings that provide health care," said Trudeau while in Vancouver on September 13. "Whether that's hospitals, clinics, abortion clinics, pharmacies, testing centres, it is not OK that across the country, hospitals are having to put up barricades today to manage the mobs coming their way."
