I am involved in the development of a new
Fall Festival that highlights the historical roots of farming in
Valley East. We hope to initiate a local farmersí market and
encourage residents to purchase produce that is harvested
locally. When I am elected I intend to do whatever we can to set
up a Valley East Farmers Market for the outlying areas.
While many think that Sudbury is a mining
community, the truth is that much of our early success was due
to the rich farmland that we have in this area. We can stimulate
and develop our rural communities by purchasing their produce,
their eggs, milk, meat, poultry, etc. This not only helps the
farmer, but also provides good jobs for some of our residents.
It is money that stays in the community and is reinvested in the
Greater Sudbury Area, not funnelled to other cities.
The next four years will be a time for us
to divert more resources to the local farming sector in order to
help them thrive for the sake of our overall community health
