What a fantastic document this is! This book surveys the Canadians in various provinces who are working to create a sustainable food industry. Each chapter deals with issues in a particular province regarding a particular commodity - and even the word commodity gets a refresher in this book. Elton has completely refreshed the way I look at the food industry, and I've been fully aware of Canadian agriculture after having grown up on a dairy farm and working on one weekly. I can imagine that some Canadians would find this book rather shocking. I certainly hope to be able to pass it around.
