Think food and water when at the polls

 In Letters, Opinion

Editor:

It’s spring and the provincial election is in the air!

What better time to think about our expectations for our children?

Ontario is losing 175 acres of farmland to development every day – that’s roughly two million acres by 2050 – and demands for water by private interests are growing stronger. Yet Ontario’s population is increasing so we need to be able to feed and supply more people.

I ask you and your readers, when you vote on June 7, to make sure you chose a representative with a plan to protect Ontario’s food and water for future generations.

Now is the time to do your research. Today’s decisions are our legacy.  #FoodAndWaterFirst
