Trudeau says ‘Difficult time’ ahead with food shortages

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau warned Canadians during a press conference on Thursday that Canada is set to suffer food shortages in the near future.

“We’ve seen… disruptions of supply chains around the world, which is resulting in higher prices for consumers and democracies, like ours, and resulting in significant shortages and projected shortages of food, of energy in places around the world. This is going to be a difficult time because of the war, because of the recovery from the pandemic.”

“This is going to be a difficult time because of the war, because of the recovery from the pandemic,” Trudeau continued.

Inflation is becoming an even more growing problem in Canada, with recent statistics show worst inflation in 30 years with no signs of it abating.

On the same day, US President Joe Biden spoke to media with a very similar message, saying that food shortages are “gonna be real,” and that it was largely due to sanctions imposed on Russia

While Biden mentioned holding talks with other countries to find methods to boost output, Trudeau said only that he “had Canada’s back,” without offering any specific answers or solutions.
