FOOD IS A TRIP


THE PROBLEM Food security in the GGA is a major concern within urban areas, and the overall cost and distance travelled associated with the transportation of food is not feasible to sustain its population and environment in 2040. 78% of the food retail market is monopolized by three big-box grocers — Loblaws, Sobeys and Metro.


78% Every "meal" we eat requires approximately 20 fuel-driven trips

Pedestrian transport has been calculated to account for journeys of around 500 m, at a rate of 3km/hr and can accomodate up to 35 L. Cycling can account for journeys of up to 30km radius and at a rate of up to 20 k/h, with a capacity of around 200 L per journey.

MEDIUM SCALE

Streetcars, subway, buses and medium sized trucks for neighbour hood scale vehicles.

As this is a flexibly designed system, the capacity exists to grow and adapt.

LARGE SCALE Shipping and rail will cover the large scale transport option.

HOW IT’S GOING TO HAPPEN KEY TRANSPORTATION MOVES

FOOD ECONOMY ONTARIO JOBS WHICH RELY ON A SOLID FOOD AND FARM SECTOR

• DIFFERENT MINISTRIES AT BOTH THE FEDERAL AND PROVINCIAL LEVEL PROVIDE INITIAL INVESTMENT INTO THE DIGITAL INFRASTRUCTURE • CONTINUE TO EXPAND REGIONAL FORMS OF TRANSPORTATION (METROLINKS 25 YEAR PLAN) • FIND NEW TRANSIT OPPORTUNITIES CLOSER TO PERI-AGRICULTURE

752,000

• EXPAND LOCAL TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR INNOVATIVE IDEAS AROUND GOODS MOVEMENT


MAKING IT HAPPEN

ELIMINATE UNECESSARY FOOD ASSOCIATED TRIPS BY

30%

THE TO-DO LIST: • DEVELOP FULL COST PRICING POLICY • RECOGNIZE PROVINCIAL FOOD SAFETY & INSPECTION AT THE SAME LEVEL AS FEDERAL INSPECTIONS • ALLOW MOBILE ABATTOIRS AS “KILL AND CHILL” FACILITIES • EXEMPT FARMERS FROM PROCESSING TAXES SO THEY CAN EXTEND THEIR BUSINESS • CONTINUE THE IMPLEMENTATION OF LOCAL FOOD PROCUREMENT POLICY AS ALREADY DEVELOPED • CREATE INCENTIVES FOR ALL USERS • REDUCE WASTE


CHOOSE DIFFUSION BECAUSE... WHY THIS SYSTEM DESIGN IS AWESOME A wider variety of fresh produce is available across the whole of our urban area. Opportunities for entrepreneurship and innovation are increased. Increased food security for the region. Improved animal welfare, yay happy cows! Increase access to local and fresh foods Integrate our food and transportation system
