A determined government can induce black markets in anything. Canada's 300% tariffs on dairy imports, designed to protect Canada's dairy cartel, seems to have induced a new cross-border smuggling trade. Where booze flowed South from Canada during America's prohibition, now cheese makes its way north.
Here's World Report:
And there are allegations that Canadian police officers were involved in the smuggling.
I want to see a CBC cutesy version of Boardwalk Empire based around this concept. Nucky Thompson and the Dairy Cartel. Or, maybe better, a Christopher Guest documentary.
