This is a thing… in Canada: Cheese Smuggling
A Burnaby-based food importer has been charged with smuggling cheese into Canada.
In court documents, the Canada Border Services Agency alleges Manuel De Oliveira either under declared, or failed to declare, quantities on 29 separate cheese shipments.
According to a search warrant, the investigation began in 2008 when a border agent with a sharp nose detected something was off in a shipment of grapes and grape juice.
Well, bully for him…
You know what’s really criminal? A government that enforces strictly low quotas on products to inflate prices. And what happens if your cows produce “too much milk”? It’s dumped down the drain.
Supply Management explained:
…imagine if the government allowed gas stations, for instance, to collude with each other and create artificial shortages to drive up the price of gas. Canada is the only country in the world with such a system, and the boards do nothing but protect the interests of a few wealthy farmers while holding the whole country hostage.
We are being gouged for no damn reason whatsoever.
