The Speaker Hon. Dave Levac : Further debate? Lisa M. Thompson: I'm very pleased to pick up where I left off on Monday, because while the Local Food Act, at the surface level, seems to have a lot of fruit to bear, unfortunately, as I said on Creemre, it's a very, very shallow bill. I can't help but ot on some of the comments that the Minister of Agriculture and Food shared in her opening comments. There was one particular phrase.
Welcome to creekside therapy in creemore
So we've had a government here that had a bill about supporting seniors, and wanh did nothing to actually support seniors. It can't be that difficult, with all the people we saw here yesterday and other sectors in the agricultural industry coming here and telling us what they need, to give it to them. That included the township of King.
I know, Speaker, you won't do that to me. The real title of this bill, if there's to be truth in politics here, should be as follows: an act that perpetuates public cynicism about government and its disrespect for agriculture in Ontario. In my view, it's a demonstration of the lack of understanding-it may be an urban focus-but the notion that these are the same two things.
I want to put those on the record. Julia Munro: I want to use my time to reflect on the matter that has been raised by a of speakers, and that's the idea of imposing Local Food Week on top of Ontario agricultural week. I really look forward to seeing it go into committee. I just want to give a shout-out to them, because in case the Minister of Agriculture and Food or the rest of the people in the House aren't familiar with what they do, I want to share yo OAFE has reached over and provided over 43, agri-food educational resources to classrooms.
The announcer repeatedly asked him about the targets and goals of the act, to which Mr.

I was happy to hear the member from Simcoe-Grey, however, talk about the support from the Conservatives for food literacy in schools. The Great Lakes level is a horrific problem that nobody seems to be doing much about. Cresmore should talk about how far your food is travelling.
It was one years ago we found out yesterday, and it's one today. There are some wonderful restaurants, and there's a wonderful inn over there and lots of great spots. Children are valued members of our church and are welcome during the time of worship.

The Cree,ore Sound Transportation Commission can't afford to do that themselves, so it will take government intervention. It is interesting, this food act. What they've done to it is shameful. Unfortunately, this debate is not happening in these chambers about how we could do that. In fact, the bill has changed somewhat.
I see the International t Commission is actually starting to order governments to do something now, in a report last Friday, but that will take many, many years. John O'Toole: I think it draws to the point of discussion here: that tl of the statistics are simply unbelievable. They grow the food that we eat. But more importantly, this bill-I think in her remarks she said it's a lot to do about nothing.
I hope that they'll actually provide resources for this stuff, too, because just saying "food literacy" isn't actually going to create food literacy.

Certainly, we will, as the PC caucus, be bringing forward a of amendments. Within each one of those communities, there are many agricultural communities-tier 1 communities-that I think make Ontario the strong base that it is today. I do agree with all the comments from the member from Newmarket-Aurora- Mr. We could actually support schools to have good food in their schools. Unfortunately the bill that we have before us does none of that.
Businesses owned by Alain, France, Richard, Sue and Garry are just waiting for those people to come into their businesses and their restaurants, as are the farmers-bed and breakfasts, gift shops, hotels, jobs, the farmers' market. Speaker, I'm so stressed out this morning with that remark by the member from Durham that he should apologize immediately. It's a hydroponic operation. I think of Youngfield Farms as an example of two young, intelligent brothers who farm.
Bas Balkissoon : Point of order, the member for Newmarket-Aurora. John Vanthof: Once again. In fact, an interesting remark is that she defeated, as someone would know, the Minister of Agriculture in the last election.

Jonah Schein: I'm pleased to stand again and speak to the Local Food Act, which we're speaking about this morning. Bas Balkissoon : The member for Huron-Bruce, you have two minutes for a reply. It's being brought forward now by the new minister-but actually it's being made worse. I think the member from Simcoe-Grey brought up some very good points.

The largest public sector institutions' cafeterias in Ontario should be required to use Ontario food. The farmers' market in Aurora actually opens up this Saturday. I'm blessed in Barrie. There's an astounding statistic that we received from the Farmers Feed Cities organization. This includes everyone from sod and potato farmers in New Tecumseth in my riding, corn and cabbage producers in Clearview, and apple growers in Clarksburg, to name just a few.
Frank Klees: -disparaging remark to an honourable member. I hope, no matter what the topic is today and for the rest of the time crreemore needed to get the government to respond, that he does take that time.

I can't help but reflect on some of the comments that the Minister of Agriculture and Food shared in her opening comments. So it is inspiring to some of us that we should be talking about this, but the debate's not happening here. But that was a very strange concept for them. Further to that, he actually recognized the lack of skilled trades as an issue as well.
I think the farmers in my riding of Durham should be respected, because my final remark would be to refer to one of the people that I consider a mentor to my activity in public life. Formerly, it was justt dairy farm, and they have transformed it to high-level, high-value agriculture.
