Inuit woman named Leesee Papatsie slides her shopping cart into a supermarket on a singular

on finding affordable food.
The outing is an exercise in sticker shock. In (5) the meat fridge, two rib-eye steaks cost $26.
Frozen chicken nuggets are nearly $23. The fresh strawberries are just $5, but five ears of corn
are $8. Ms. Papatsie stops at the fridge lined with orange juice, at $11.99 a pop. “I love those,”
she says, eyeing the (6) orange cartons, “but I’m not spending $12 on them.”
Ms. Papatsie is a slight, quiet-spoken mother of five who has become something of a trailblazing
rebel. Breaking with custom among the Inuit, she (7) sparked a grassroots protest
against crushing food prices that she says are hurting her people. (8) In a land where families
struggle to make it through long, sunless winters, (9) frustrations have grown that federal
programs have failed to deliver relief from high food prices. Even with only one child left at
home, Ms. Papatsie (10) spends $600 a week on groceries, and she says it’s not uncommon to

open a refrigerator in Iqaluit and find ketchup and soy sauce but little else. [Adapted from The
Globe and Mail, January 20th, 2014]
