Yes surely. Not ideas but fact.



''A homeless person in EU has access to better and safe food in EU than a customer in Canada''
That is certainly not a fact.

All customers have the same access to the same foods, whether homeless or not. Canada is an equal opportunity country. Lol
I’m sure there isn’t a store in the EU that has ever had anything ever on any shaheed anywhere that was past a beat before date....ever

I’m sure the homeless who pick in garbage cans and dumpsters always find dairy products within their shelf life expectancy


Time to pack your bubble wrap and join the EU

“They may have less access to expired food however.”
I’ll add quotes as well for effect
“They may have less access to expired food however.” - Thanks for at least confirming that.
Canada's finest - ''providing access to expired food at your local supermarket''
Your quotes are much appreciated.

You are really funny. Homeless or not we all have access to expired products at our local supermarkets. Canada is really an equal opportunity country.

You’re right, I love this country, and I love shopping in that back corner of the store where they sell near best before date products at discount. Thankfully they don’t explode when the date does in fact arrive.
You can never have too much banana bread.
What a country

In EU the supermarkets are not allowed to throw the within 1 day expiry products in the bin because the homeless people may eat it and fall ill.
Matter of fact supermarkets faced lawsuits which is why they stopped throwing away near expiry products in the bins.
I'm having trouble finding info on any of this. What are these "bins" and how are they accessible? What happens if the product is "2 day expiry"...is that allowed? What specific lawsuit(s) caused these EU policy changes...to a specific supermarket chain?

It only makes sense for you to venture out there.

That way when you’re out back rummaging in the trash for your dairy products you won’t come across any more spoiled milk.

Also WHY Pharmacies take back / recycle expired meds... they don’t think it wise we all take matters into our own hands
They want us to stay safe
They take medicine back in order to prevent it from falling in to the wrong hands (kids or junkies rummaging through the trash) or from contaminating the water supply (from people who flush it down the toilet).

No I wont venture out of here.
My forefathers from EU made sure to steal all the land they can from the first nations just to make sure I wont have to rummage in the trash.
If they did not do that then the first nations will be the richest people on earth just by collecting all the rent and royalty money from the oil and real estate in Canada.
So instead of trash I will collect my spoiled milk from my local supermarket.

Your forefathers should have never left the EU! What your forefathers did to the natives, the immigrants will do the same in Europe.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

True... there are several reasons WHY Pharmacies take back meds.
I only mentioned one.
It ties back to many Govt policies / departments and how they interact with our lives
(Health Canada - Environment Canada - Agriculture Canada - Food Inspection Agency - etc)
For example,
One has to remember, we have a National Healthcare Program (tho run Provincially) that looks at ways to mediate risks & expenditures
Getting unused, and expired meds... including OTC items off the streets makes a lot of sense for everyone’s well being
(And the overall health of the relative Govt programs too)
