  1. At the moment most of our food is imported from around the world, but as fuel costs continue to escalate, so too will food costs and we will be wishing we could grow more in British Columbia.

  2. I have no problem with giving farmers the ability to make income off their farms so they can stay farming the problem is the tinfoil hats who automatically go off the deep end and think all the ALR land is going to be turned into condos or parking lots

    • The problem is that the Liberals will not be able to help themselves. Good fertile land will be given to their supporters and friends, and the crap land will be left behind for the rest of us.
