What Canadians are saying about this event

“What Olivier de Schutter’s report has made clear ahead of 2015, and the expiry of the Millennium Development Goals, is that we can no longer look at issues like the right to food, or poverty and inequality, as something that we just need to tackle in Niger or Pakistan or Haiti. We need to address it here in Canada too.  The North-South dichotomy has collapsed. Food insecurity is a global phenomenon that requires a national and global response.” Julia Sanchez, President and CEO, Canadian Council for International Cooperation, Ottawa.
