Yesterday I had the privilege of joining NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brousseau at the National Press Gallery on Parliament Hill for a press conference to promote her private members bill entitled: Fight Against Food Waste Act.
I was able to make to present some comments and take some questions from the media.You can see the text of my remarks on my blog http://foodisfood.ca/?p=2537), a copy of the bill and a couple of photos and a link to the video (my pieces start at 6:29 and 25:52 of the video). http://www.cpac.ca/fr/programs/a-la-une/episodes/48826487
The bill seeks to establish a Food Waste Awareness Day and the development of a national food waste strategy.
Ultimately I am looking to rally some National support for this bill. This Bill reaches an important milestone on 4 October when it will receive second reading. If successful it would then be debated in committee.
