BC Chefs Urgently Call to Kill Bill 24-Interview!


 “Chefs and Restaurateurs have worked hard over the past 40 years to support our farms for not only the food they produce but also the culture they bring to our industry. Growing local food is not a thing of the past it is our present and our future, never has the demand been higher for locally sourced nutritious food.” – Scott Jaeger, president, Chefs’ Table Society of British Columbiachefs4alr

  • The Chefs’ Table Society of BC wants to stop Bill 24, and needs help to spread the word, before it’s too late.

They urgently call on people of BC to read this and then send a note to the government Tell BC Government to Stop Bill 24 

Bill 24 proposes to divide the Agriculture land reserve into 2 zones, the changes being put forward are in zone 2 which contains 90%  of the protected land. This will essentially open the door to remove 90% of the mere 5% of B.C.’s  ALR.

The Chefs’ Table Society of British Columbia has had a social media storm brewing – with selfies and calls to action with the hash tag #chefs4ALR and #killbill24

Now they are calling upon the media and public to help spread the word and call to protect BC farmland  – read this open letter, entitled Farmland is Important to Me.
