YPP cares about the health of British Columbians and wants all of us to have access to healthy sustainable foods. British Columbians deserve food that is healthy, affordable, and produced using sustainable methods.
The BC agricultural industry needs to use sustainable farming practices in order to produce low cost, high quality organic and natural food locally for British Columbians.
- Provide incentives encouraging British Columbians to grow their own food including decreasing taxes on products used to grow food.
- Allow greater access to land where local community gardens can locate.
- Allow greater access to the local marketplace for locally produced agricultural products.
- Allow greater access to unused provincially controlled non-sensitive land and non-sensitive potential irrigation streams.
