Wpg Free Press: Canadians paying more for dairy, poultry

September 30, 2014 — 

The Winnipeg Free Press wrote about a study done by economists Ryan Cardwell, Chad Lawley and Di Xiang. Their paper will be published in an forthcoming issue of Canadian Public Policy, Canada’s top economic policy journal.

The study compares average prices for 10 different dairy and poultry products in a number of Canadian and U.S. cities within close proximity to the Canada/U.S. border, including Winnipeg.

Canadians are paying anywhere from 10 per cent to 69 per cent more for certain dairy and poultry products than their U.S. counterparts, the U of M researchers found.
