Frustrated with food prices, woman makes 1,000 km grocery trip for Christmas dinner

 


A Fort Simpson, N.W.T., woman is set to drive nearly 500 kilometres south, and back, to get her groceries for Christmas dinner.

Now that the ice crossing to the community is open, Leona Kraus plans to drive out of Fort Simpson and head down to Fort Nelson, B.C., because she refuses to pay the price for fresh food at her local Northern store.

"I refuse to shop here," Kraus told CBC News.
