From Sustain Ontario
Good food has the power to make positive change. Food and farming policies and programs can grow Ontario’s economy, reduce our health care costs, improve our environmental impact, build stronger communities, reduce poverty, and improve educational outcomes. These issues are vital to Ontarians, as recent IPSOS polling has demonstrated. With this in mind, Sustain Ontario has surveyed experts working in food and farming sectors to bring important policy issues to the forefront of the conversation.
We encourage you to visit the Vote ON Food and Farming website (http://sustainontario.com/vote-on-food) to access resources that equip both MPP candidates and the public with information about the importance of Ontario’s food systems. As part of the campaign, we have provided background information and evidence, as well as a question card for citizens to use during public debates. We also invite you to share your commitment to healthy food and farming by tweeting with the hashtag #voteONfood.
