The MD Hopes to Protect Farmland

Protecting farmland is on the MD of Bonnyville’s agenda. The MD of Bonnyville councillors recently attended an agricultural conference where it was revealed that 1.3 million acres of farmland had been turned over to urban development in Canada last year. Previously, the city of cold lake had requested that 32 hundred acres of land been be used for urban development, however when faced with new information the MD does not believe this is in the best interest of the area. Canada being one of only 7 other countries that are able to feed themselves in the world, the MD believes that it needs to re-evaluate how farmland is viewed and how to protect it in the future.
