I cannot believe that we are still talking about "food deserts" in Hamilton. Or Canada, period. Our only food deserts exist in the sprawling suburbs.

I and other people I know drive from the suburbs into Hamiltons "Code Red" neighbourhoods to shop at the No Frills, the Food Basics, the Farmer's Market and the Asian and Portuguese shops downtown. There is plenty of good, inexpensive, healthy food just East and North of King & James.

But let my shelf my incredulity over the term for a moment.

Ryan: can you tell us your definition of "food desert" so we can look at Google Maps, drop some markers, and see if it somehow makes more sense that it seems?
