Food and farming policies and programs can grow Ontario’s economy, reduce healthcare costs, improve our environmental impact, reduce poverty, and improve educational outcomes. At the core of the Vote ON Food & Farming campaign is the fundamental belief that food and farming related policies cross these traditional silos. By responding to Sustain Ontario’s questions, parties will be speaking directly to how they intend to advance critical issues such as jobs, health, environment, social services and education.
In May 2014, Sustain Ontario sent 11 questions to provincial party leaders, seeking their commitments to healthy food and farming policies as part of the 2014 Vote ON Food election campaign. Party responses are published online on the Vote ON Platform Report, alongside other web-based resources that will inform both MPP candidates and the public about the importance of Ontario’s food systems.
