Promoting food sustainability in an urban centre

Brian Evoy’s response:

 

Thank you for UAK's questions regarding food security.

 

Many of the questions are impacted by the federal government policies including Free Trade and the subsidies provided to farmers.

 

Once elected I am always available to listen to the many community stakeholders and the residents of Kingscourt-Strathcona.

 

I support the concept of community gardens including the Oak Street community garden that resides in the district I am seeking election as councillor.

 

Perhaps another idea to ensure food security,develop community and to ensure sustainable neighbourhoods is to have a "farmers market" at the Memorial Centre.
