Save The Bees - Please Buy More Canadian Honey
By Anthony J. Mountjoy | Thu, 16 Jun 2016 08:00:00 EST
What if bees sang like song birds? Would you treat them like we treat them now? Milking their product like groaning cows, confident they'll endlessly turn that honey into sweetness. Is it too much to ask, that we protect those bees and bee keepers when they need us. Have they not invested enough in our lives? Have you not benefited enough from bees to second think a couple of bad habits?
The worst habit off all is not buying honey as often as you can. Are you using jam on your toast? Stop that! Use honey. Canadian honey specifically. There are so many wonderful things about honey we just had to compile some of them here for our readers.
Did you know the ancient Egyptians used it as an embalming fluid and a dressing for wounds; and as an offering to their gods? Honey is also one of nature's best wound remedies because of its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
When you sit in a garden do you not appreciate the fragrance of those flowers? Right now bees are dying across Canada at alarming rates and they need your help. Bee farming becomes more expensive as the yields of honey decline. Beyond the loss of Canadian honey farms generally, bees are being attacked by several new kinds of parasites and pesticides. Some even say there's evidence our cell phones and radio pollution is pushing them over the edge.
There is only one thing I know that's guaranteed to help. BUY LOTS OF CANADIAN HONEY. Support a local financial incentive to keeping those bees healthy. I bought a tub this afternoon and I'm committed to buying more every single month.
And not just any honey either. Order from a different honey producer each time, either through a different brand or website. The best is a local farmers market. As an additional benefit, when you spend money on product this close to the land you gain maximum benefit from your dollar and contribute the most possible to GDP. You'll be a patriot!

|Indians Are Canada’s Only Visible Minority|
The average Indian in Canada makes much less than our national average a year. Metis had the highest median income at nearly $28,000, followed by the Inuit with just less than $25,000 and First Nations people with a median income of approximately $19,000 in 2005.
