Federal Election 2011: First Debate -- Food Issues


Got nothing...almost nothing.  The Liberals mentioned their National Food Policy in passing as 'putting Canadian food on Canadian plates'.

At a stretch, the temporary workers could refer to Canada's dirty little secret of migrant workers.  Maybe the coming rising food prices could come under the economy but what part of the economy?  Wages, farm subsidies, corporate taxes, strength of the Canadian dollar, environmental factors leading to decreasing yields or what.

Regardless, I am not looking forward to another debate tonight, if very few issues are actually going to be discussed but it is my responsibility as a voter...and I will have to watch something until the Vancouver game is on.  Go 'Nucks.
