In a period in which attention on food policies is thriving and belief in politics is decreasing, affordability is one of the defining problems that will assume the election’s outcome.
The report indicates that, on average, Canadian households are likely to expend at least $400 more on groceries next year.
However, no authority have given greatly attention mainly to the problem of food security and the widespread anxieties
According to Angus Reid Global analysis found that 60 per cent of Canadians assume food security and food price need extra attention this election.
That’s likely why agri-food strategies during an election are merely debated
Food costs are increasing more rapidly than inflation, and accessing healthy food may be getting out of reach for many Canadians.
Food security is uncommon in policy conversations around agricultural and farming growth, food waste, regional food systems or a national food policy that incorporates these and other issues.
The Angus Reid Global poll indicates that Canadians think the NDP to be reasonably positioned to deal with the issue of food security. As for the Green Party, food waste is the one problem they appear to own, based on the survey’s results.
55 per cent of Canadians, when forced to specify a sole food-related problem, felt that food insurance and affordability for all Canadians should be our next government’s preference in agri-food for the next four years.
It’s time for rulers to understand that when we discuss affordability, we cannot ignore the need to eat.
