Jason this is a really hopeful, optimistic article. I agree urban agriculture is important for our future (and present).

However, one aspect that is missing here is the requirement for Hamilton to hold its urban boundary. Farmland is being rapidly paved over with sprawling suburban developments (e.g. Binbrook, Rymal Road East, Waterdown), then roads leading to those developments have to be widened, eating up more land.

We need to slow this down by having these developments truly pay for themselves and encouraging infill development.
