Prime Minister Trudeau warned the country on Thursday during a press conference that Canada is set to suffer food shortages in the near future.
The Prime Minister blamed global supply chain issues and the war in Ukraine on what he said would be a "difficult time" for the country.
According to Business Standard, Trudeau was giving a press conference and said the following to the crowd of reporters and other media people:
"We've seen... disruptions of supply chains around the world, which is resulting in higher prices for consumers and democracies, like ours, and resulting in significant shortages and projected shortages of food, of energy in places around the world."
"This is going to be a difficult time because of the war, because of the recovery from the pandemic," Trudeau continued.
Statistics have shown that Canada's economy has yet to recover from the damage done to it by the lengthy and often draconian lockdown measures imposed in the course of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Inflation is also a particular problem in Canada, with recent statistics showing the worst monthly inflation in decades, and no signs of it abating.
On the very same day, US President Joe Biden has taken a similar tack with the media, saying that food shortages are "gonna be real," and that it was largely due to sanctions imposed on Russia.
While Biden referred to holding talks with other nations in order to find ways to increase production, Trudeau didn't mention any possible solutions to the problem, simply saying that he "had Canada's back."
