Will Ontario Buy Ontario?

What does Farmer Morris do in the winter? Today I’m in downtown Toronto attending a Greenbelt sponsored seminar discussing how Ontario’s healthcare sector can purchase more local food.

Sounds crazy right? Why should this even need to be a discussion eh?

Well, for a myriad of reasons, our own governments feed our own citizens imported food, while many sectors of Ontario agriculture struggle to compete against foods from all over the world.

I was advised by a colleague in the local food distribution system not to attend this day. ”Probably a waste of time” was how it was put to me. I struggled with that for several days. Because I agree with that.

But I am trying to remain optimistic. So here I am. We’ll see how it goes. Please, nobody hold your breath!
