One of our local stations, Global News, has a segment called “Consumer Matters”. They were doing a piece about groceries, as food prices are expected to rise in Canada. One of their reporters found our blog and got in touch with us about starring in this piece.
The end result – we were on the 6 o’clock news today! Here is a link to the video (about 3 minutes long):

Luckily, they were way ahead of us and got someone else to talk about it!
