Arrell Director Discusses Food Security in FP Commentary

Dr. Evan Fraser

Dr. Evan Fraser, director of U of G’s Arrell Food Institute, contributed a commentary to the Financial Post about why the flooding in British Columbia is a reminder of how precarious our food supply is.

The flooding left many communities in the lower mainland on the verge of being cut off from food imports that so much of Canada relies on. Fraser offered suggestions for changes.

Fraser holds the Canada Research Chair in Global Food Security and researches the links between food security, land use, and global environmental and socio-economic forces that shape our food-producing landscapes.
