Farming in Other Countries

 

Other countries are going through the same struggles as Ontario:

-          a growing population

-          pressures to develop farmland

-          reduction in skilled farmer labour

-          environmental changes (climate change, chemical-use, pollution, new technology)

-          a need to ensure future food security

 

Do Ontarians or Canadians want to rely on other countries for food security? #localfood
