Shockingly, it seems that the ones footing the bill for the increase in minimum wages in Ontario are NOT those filthy rich people in their top hats and tailcoats smoking their cigars. Nope. It's you and me.

Restaurant prices across Canada rose 3.7 per cent in January from a year earlier, a far faster pace than December's 2.9 per cent. The overall move higher in food prices, of 2.3 per cent, was the fastest pace since April, 2016.

In Ontario alone, Statistics Canada said, restaurant meals climbed 4.9 per cent, and child care and housekeeping services almost 10 per cent. That, the agency said, coincided with "a legislated minimum wage increase."
