Where’s The Beef?

Received a call from my Auto Insurance broker earlier today. Despite 35 years of fault free accidents (one in total) and not a speeding ticket in over 20, my rates are going up again. As a matter of fact, they’re going up so significantly he suggested I just get all of my insurance thru ICBC instead of just my liability coverage.

So let’s add car insurance to an already growing lists of things that are going up. (significantly) 

And since we’re on the subject, have you bought celery recently? Cost me $5 for a bunch of celery the other day. 

And, our gas and our running feud with Alberta has yet to even peak yet!

But I did manage to find something that was going down in price. 

If you enjoy a good steak once in awhile, with the rising popularity of plant-based foods on the rise, red meat could drop by 3% this year. First time that’s happened in 10 years so say a report from Dalhousie University and the University of Guelph. 

Good news for steak lovers. 

The beef industry says they’re not concerned about the Plant Based Food companies despite the fact that Beyond Meat just went public yesterday and opened and went up 163% from it’s initial IPO (Initial Purchase Offer)

It opened yesterday at $25. It closed at $67.95. 

Obviously the beef industry has nothing to worry about.
