The soaring price of sugar.

On the front page of the Report on Business Section of today's Globe and Mail, is a report on the rising prices of commodities, per cent change, year to date: Sugar has the fourth highest change at +57.3 (by comparison, coffee is at +52.0, gold is at +26.9, crude oil is at +2.1).
Let's hope the added value of sugar trickles down to the long-suffering sugar planters of Negros. But more likely, the money will go to the sugar monopolies!
