"Our entire society rests upon - and is dependent upon - our water, our land, our forests, and our minerals. How we use these resources influences our health, security, economy, and well being."

"To protect agriculture, it is not enough to just protect the land. The farming community needs to have some certainty that it can continue to operate under a clear and consistent set of rules, protected from conflict, and with a reasonable return for the product it produces. If we want to maintain the ability to produce our own food, we must create the environment in which it can happen. Preservation of agriculture requires federal and provincial support for farmers as well as for farms."
