P3 Permaculture's insight:

Patented material that can escape into the wild and breed with wild populations is not safe at all, regardless of the alleged safety of the Untested GMO product!  Patents should not be supported on self replicating genetic material.

Backyard chickens illegal in Ahuntsic, but why?

Backyard chickens illegal in Ahuntsic, but why? | Food: Thy True Medicine | Scoop.it
A family in Ahuntsic who is housing four chickens in their backyard just received a notice from their borough that the animals have to go.
P3 Permaculture's insight:

In these difficult times, with food costs rising at an ever increasing rate, and the cruelty of our food production industry at an all time high. Having 4 chickens in your back yard is not where the problem lies.  

 

This family is doing what many more should and if we do not support them in their fight then we will loose grounds in our urban food movement.


 Lets start a petition to the city to change these outdated bylaws and implement sanitary guidelines like in Vancouver, Halifax, New York, and many more.  "As of 2012 nearly 200 municipalities had revived old regulations or instated new ones that allow households to keep a certain number of chickens, the size of the flock often determined by the size of the property"  http://www.economist.com/blogs/economist-explains/2013/10/economist-explains-11


 This and many other strategies to produce local healthy food need to be embraced and encouraged by our future leaders, otherwise they are not leading in the right direction.

Why 80% of People Worldwide Will Soon Stop Eating Wheat | Food: Thy True Medicine | Scoop.it
The future of wheat is certain, and it's toxic. There are as many health risks associated with the consumption of wheat as there are nutritional benefits claimed by the wheat industry.
