While Premier Kathleen Wynne, who also serves as Minister of Agriculture, did not accept an invite to the celebration, she sent a letter of appreciation to NDACT.
“I appreciate the passion you all bring to this very important issue,” she wrote. “I believe as premier we can balance our need for aggregate resources while ensuring we protect our farmland.”
SYMBOLIC FLIGHT FOR FOOD AND WATER
Last Sunday’s Celebrate Food & Water First event culminated with a fly-by and landing by Bill Lishman, the ultralight pilot who famously led flocks of geese and storks on migratory routes throughout the United States.
PROTECTING SOURCE WATER AND PRIME AG LAND
As many as an estimated 1,500 Food & Water First supporters kept things alive at North Dufferin Recreation Centre (Honeywood arena) Sunday as North Dufferin Agriculture and Community Taskforce (NDACT) provided space for 52 indoor vendors as a sort of “thank you” event. Mr. Cosack is the spokesman for NDACT and was chairman of Sunday’s event. NDACT is currently following through on its quarry victory by promoting a concept of Food and Water First for all rural planning.
