Report on Food Prices to Be Released Today

The Nishnawbe Aski Nation will be joining in on a webinar today that deals with the high cost of food in Canada.

Olivier De Shutter  will release the results of his report about the right to food in Canada after his mission to our country in May of last year.

NAN says it's remote First Nations communities have to pay double the cost for essential foods such as milk, vegetables and fruit making it difficult for them to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
