  1. I remember being in Fort Simpson once, at the beginning of winter, just just before they can start the ice road and that the ferry had been out of use for more than a month, the grocery fridges and fruits/veggies/dairy products alleys were almost ripped off of all the foods that usually belong there. For the last 4 red peppers, it was 18.19$/kg. And they were in rough shape. Everything was insanely pricey, worst, at that point that what I saw in Inuvik (which was the worst I had seen in the territories before then).

    I used to live in Hay River, but I decided to go back to university to complete a degree at McGill in Montreal. Back then, the thing I missed the most about the South was the food/groceries. Now, the thing I miss the most about the North is everything, except the groceries (but even the food I miss it, because the meat, bannock and stew are hardly the same here).

    Hang on there 🙂 You’re lucky! Can’t wait to go back!

    Thanks for sharing that blog, I might follow once in a while if you don’t mind?
