The End of Rural Towns
It is surprising and sad to see how much rural towns like Kamsack have declined over the years. When I was a child, Kamsack was a smaller town but very vibrant. There were many stores and business was booming.
Now most of the stores have closed and younger people have moved to bigger cities. On every street there are five to ten for sale signs on houses. If you want cheap real estate in Canada, this is a good place to come. Some of the older houses can be bought for less than $30,000.
The worst part of all this urbanization is that our food production is shifting to large corporate farms. We are eating more processed foods with more chemicals. It is getting very difficult to find decent quality fresh food in supermarkets. Meat is especially scary with all the growth hormones and antibiotics being used.
I don’t blame the corporations, they are just serving consumer demand. It is our own purchases that are fueling the demise of real food. If you care, pay more and buy from local farmers. Don’t buy pre-cooked and frozen foods. Sure it costs more, but how much is your health worth to you.
