Food Policy Becomes A Political Priority in Canada

If food policy in Canada is important to you, then you may want to look closely at the strategies embedded in the federal party's election platforms. For the first time in Canadian electoral history food has become a priority, one that is distinct from agriculture.

The Conservative policy, announced Sunday, most closely resembles a traditional agriculture policy, with its focus on efforts to sustain the family farm and boost exports, while the Liberals and New Democrats aim to foster unprecedented co-operation between government departments dealing with the production, distribution, sale and consumption of food.
