Run on rice


Empty skid that would have contained Veetee Basmati Rice ($10.39) at the Costco in Etobicoke.

The insanity of the rice shortage reached the Costco in Etobicoke where we see this empty skid where there would otherwise be rice.

I’m guessing that the news about a global rice shortage triggered panic in Canadian Costco shoppers – many of whom probably don’t even eat rice regularly. This scene was made even more unusual because the rest of the aisle was packed with rice products and rice mixes that didn’t have the same kind of run. I’ll also go out on a limb and guess that the people who bought this rice aren’t going to consume all of it either.
