Canada has the dubious distinction of being the first wealthy nation to face a probe by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the right to food. ...What nonsense! Why is the UN wasting valuable time and money on this? Because that's what the UN does!
... "What we can say about Canada is that our food system is broken," said Diana Bronson, executive director of Food Secure Canada. ...
Canada's food system is as close to impeccable as one can find anywhere in the world. Food is cheap and plentiful in every conceivable variety and conveniently available in stores and markets everywhere. People can grow their own. Where individuals or families lack resources there are many food banks and other charitable sources of food to help out. It takes an extraordinary effort on the part of a very dysfunctional person to go without.
There must be some other agenda afoot here. Oh, I know, the GOVERNMENT needs to be more involved. If the objective is to screw up the food system that's the best way to do it.
