Where does Trudeau think his "cook's" will get food from to feed his family? Oh, I know, he's the PM so he's "special" and will get whatever he wants, damn the deplorables!!At present, according to the latest census, just two per cent of Canadians are “farm (or ranch) operators.”
The numbers are a bit higher on the Prairies: 10 per cent in Saskatchewan, four per cent each in Alberta and Manitoba, but long gone are the days when a third of us lived on farms. Gone, even, are the days when we or our parents grew up in rural Canada, then moved to the city.
Most Canadians don’t even have cousins who farm.
All of which goes a long way to explaining how our prime minister, a trust-fund baby who grew up in the sheltered neighbourhood of Mount Royal, could simply decree a 30 per cent reduction in the use of fertilizers to produce food.
This is akin to the disconnect Trudeau demonstrated last winter when he similarly decreed that all cross-border truckers, who for the first 20 months of the pandemic had been Canadians’ lifeline to vast quantities of imported produce and other food stuffs, suddenly had to be vaccinated if they wanted to continue running food across the line, something they had done for nearly two years without vaccines and without incident.
Justin Trudeau demonstrates a total lack of practical understanding of how our food is produced, where it comes from and how it gets into the Provigo down the block. He acts as if it is magically produced in the back of the store and just appears as needed on the shelves.
Another sign of Trudeau’s disconnect from the real world (and an indication that nothing matters to him as much as the cult of climate alarmism) is that he has proclaimed his new fertilizer-reduction regulation in the middle of the worst food inflation Canadian consumers have faced in 40 years.

No farmer, she. Still, she used to warn that when the majority of Canadians no longer had any...apple.news
